Can't deploy a static site

I can’t deploy by site anymore. It’s literally a single index.html file.
Netlify used to work for html pages, but seems it doesn’t anymore. Are there any hacks? Do I need to add some fake build process?

it never copies the files to live

I have a similar problem.

  1. My build was not triggered when I pushed to the Gitlab repository.

  2. When I trigger the deployment myself, I get this behavior: it’s stuck at…

I have up on that site, and create an eleventy site (assuming a build process is required to deploy to Netlify) but not this site also fails to deploy

OK it worked eventually. It just took a lot longer than usual! ¯_(ツ)_/¯

yours work too eventually?

Hi, just wanted to chime in. This is likely related to the latest incident (

Yes. It took 27 minutes to start post-processing, but it eventually happened. It seems that it was prey for the pipeline backlog incident.
