Can someone please help me to fix this?

Thank you!

According to the log, there’s no package.json in the root of your repo. I did check your repo and there’s actually no package.json. So, add that file and it should work as long as there are no other errors in the code.

Thank you, I just solved it.

i am having issues deploying my site even after deleting the yarn.lock and packcage.lock filesmy repo

Hi @muhammad234

The reason for this error is there is no package.json in the root of the repository. All the code for your NFT App resides in the nft-minting-app-main directory.

You need to set the base directory to nft-minting-app-main and ensure the publish directory is set o nft-minting-app-main/build.

For reference, see the following documentation:

Hi i am new in this i dont know how to do these can you please tell me please i know i dont have .json file because i dont have one i dont know where and how to add one

There is a package.json fle in the nft-minting-app-main directory in the repository. The settings I suggested needed changing are in the Netlify UI under Site Settings > Build & Deploy > Continuous Deployment > Build Settings.

Screenshot of suggested settings @muhammad234

hey I am having a similer problem
can you help me

Hi @ali123

Everything is inside the nft-minting-app-main directory. You need to either move everything in that directory to the root of the repository or follow the Build from a subdirectory or monorepo | Netlify Docs documentation.

As is mentioned in this post and this post that the Free/Starter Tier is not designed for NFT Apps you will need to speak to someone about a higher paid plan.

waitr so where do i have to move my files?

hey i am little new here i just cloned the file can you walk me through what to do next please

just cloned the file can you walk me through what to do next please

I need to reiterate:


It is a matter of moving files inside one directory up one level, just like you would any other on your computer.

Try configuring the Build Settings like this

hello sir i am crying right now i cant thank you enought i will pray for you everyday sir thank you i was stuck here for the past 7 hours thank you soooooo much sir hope you will have a great day sir thank you thank you so much

hi there, i am glad things are working, but as coel mentioned, we are happy to keep working with you to get your site online, I wanted to let you know that all businesses in the NFT/Crypto space to speak with our sales and solutions team to purchase a contract to ensure that your site is on an appropriate account level for your usage. Our High Performance Edge product is usually a necessity to be able to handle and administer successful launches.

We have seen many, many, many customers who have sites like these get attacked, and on our lower plans, such as Starter and Pro, which you are currently on, these attacks tend to harm our main network, which is unacceptable to us as it endangers our entire business.

We may not be able to keep your site online should an attack on your site harm our network or jeopardize the uptime of other customers. Further, many NFT/Crypto sites have generated bills for thousands and thousands of US dollars worth of bandwidth used during launch, and we do take steps to ensure we get the money we are owed. Please make sure you have the money to pay for these bandwidth charges should they arise.

Please think clearly about what you are getting into here and make the smart decision, which might mean not proceeding with this project or finding a different provider, if the above seems unreasonable to you.
