PM2 error while deploying in Apps


I am trying to deploy a react project. The build was success, but I got this error in the deploy logs.

[2022-12-29 21:01:50] [PM2][ERROR] Error: Interpreter /workspace/node_modules/pm2/node_modules/.bin/ts-node is NOT AVAILABLE in PATH. (type 'which /workspace/node_modules/pm2/node_modules/.bin/ts-node' to double check.)
[2022-12-29 21:01:50] error Command failed with exit code 1.
[2022-12-29 21:01:50] info Visit for documentation about this command.

Any idea how to solve this? Thanks!

Hope that this helps!
