Using docker with app platform error resolving dockerfile path

I have an app that’s located in a subdirectory of my repo (/server) I’ve created a Dockerfile in /server/Dockerfile and set the dockerfile_path in my app spec. But I still get this error:

 => Building app using Dockerfile
 => Using Dockerfile: /.app_platform_workspace/server/DockerFile
 => Using build context /.app_platform_workspace/server/
 Error: error resolving dockerfile path: please provide a valid path to a Dockerfile within the build context with --dockerfile
Usage:

Hey there!

If you are specifying the Dockerfile path in your app spec file as well as in the build path in the UI when detecting the app type, I’d recommend opening a ticket and our support team can take a look further.

Hope it helps! Nate
