How to resolve the Deploy Error: Health Checks error?

I have a discord bot I’m writing in .net 6 I put it into a container and build/deploy it to DigitalOcean, when the deploying starts the bot starts to work for a couple of minutes but then fails because of the health checks.

I saw some comments suggesting to switch the health check to TCP from HTTP, but I’m not sure how to do this…

In case that you are referring to the DigitalOcean App Platform you can do that by following the steps here:

  • Go to your control panel at
  • Click on Apps
  • Click on the application in question
  • Then go to settings
  • Choose your app component
  • Scroll down and look for Health Checks

In there you can change the health check.

Let me know how it goes.
