Resolving Node version error.

Hello I’m trying to run webapp and I’m getting hit with Resolving Node version error. The build log looks like follows:

In the package.json file I have following declaration:

"engines": {
    "node": "^18.6.0",
    "npm": "^8.14.0"
  },

The code work when I run the commands locally and also work properly on heroku server. I can’t figure out why it fails here.

Any idea anyone?

Hi there,

It looks like a problem with the Node.js version that you are trying to use, I could suggest trying with the following instead:

{
  "engines": {
    "node": "18.x"
  }
}

Let me know how it goes!

If this still fails, is your project open-source? If so can you share a link here so I could try the deployment process on my end for further troubleshooting?

Best,

Bobby
