Question

Sorry, we couldn't find an app in your repo. PHP

I was trying to deploy my app following: https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/languages-frameworks/php/#creating-php-applications-in-app-platform

I was trying to deply from gitlab and in my root directory there is composer.json file but when I try do deplay my app, DO says that “we couldn’t find an app in your repo”

Is there something more that I need to do in order to create my app? I have even tryed to add index.php in root directory with require on vendor/autoload.php but for no use.

Even adding Dockerfile doesn’t change a thing so I have no idea what is going on.

After a bit of debugging I have found that when I try to deploy app from branch where there are only few files (index.php, composer.json, composer.lock, .gitignore, .do/app.yaml, .do/deploy.template.yaml) deploy starts without issues but when I add rest of my app files then again “we couldn’t find an app in your repo”

Hey @ciekals11,

You need to have one of index.php and composer.json in the root of the repo for a PHP app to be detected. If your code is in a subdirectory you will need to configure the Source Dir option to point to the subdirectory.

Please open a support ticket and include the link to your repo and we can take a closer look into why the process is failing. You can also share a specific commit if you wish.
