Problem deploying to ihpcloud

I am trying to deploy a test app to ihpcloud. The app is a slightly upgraded version of the ihp blog. Everything goes fine with the linkup to the GitHub repository. Then the deploy button simply gives a hover text saying "We're still preparing your project. This might take up to 30 seconds." There seem to be no way to "get in" to this process. What should I do?

Thanks for reporting! We're investigating this right now :)

I think my app is stuck at the same point.

I think its fixed now, it seems to deploy successfully. However, when visiting the domain I receive a 502 bad gateway response.

I got one step further forward.

Then I would have attached a screenshot, but ....here it is in text ... Master 4 mins ago build failed see logs below (I can't copy paste the log line - it's very long) lxc profile assign touching-snapper default,building

Just deployed a fix for your issue. It was caused by a missing .gitignore file in the repo :)

That is mostly fixed now. Thanks to the team! I still get a raft of messages on the deploy page, but the app now deploys and responds correctly.

Would an empty .gitignore be enough, or are there file types that need to be in there?

I have now made a trivial change to my code, tested it locally (works fine) and pushed it to my repo. I have also added .gitignore to my git index.

The deploy appears to work, but there are error messages on the deployment (that I cannot copy paste ) and the app gives a 502 error nginx bad gateway

And without any changes or even a new deployment the app's back up!

Thanks to whoever fixed it

Perfect :)
