Trying to set up a Laravel application on App Platform

Hello, I’m trying to set up a Laravel app on App Platform, once the build is complete and I go to the root page “/” everything works well, but if I try to navigate to another route (eg: “/login”) I’m getting a 404 error request, but looking at the logs the request is not being handled by Laravel, so it seems Digital App Platform is sending this 404 not found page.

How can I tell to App Platform to use my Laravel routes?

Ok, I’m embarrassed. Turns out the .htaccess (inside public folder) file was eliminated from the git repository and hence, it all stopped working.
