Question

React app stuck on "Starting the development server..."

I recently configured my react app on digital ocean. After the deployment, i have received a notification saying that my site is built, deployed and live. However going trying to access my website by given link leaves me with an error screen saying “We encountered an error when trying to load your application and your page could not be served. Check the logs for your application in the App Platform dashboard.” I’ve checked the activity logs in my dashboard - I can see it’s stuck on “Starting the development server…” Any clues what to do? I’ve tried rebuilding, didn’t help. It’s just stuck. Thanks in advance
