I tried various ways out but couldn’t find a solution to get off this error. Can anyone help me out with this error?

Thanks in advance.

12:35:47 PM: Deploy did not succeed: Deploy directory ‘build’ does not exist

This error message is found in your log, this means that in the deploy settings in the Netlify UI your publish directory/build command has been set to build and Netlify can’t find a directory named build in your project.
I would just leave these settings blank unless you need to change them to abide by a certain SSG’s configuration

Hello,

I made the changes in the directory build as suggested, build was successful and now it shows : Page Not Found

Looks like you’ve followed a broken link or entered a URL that doesn’t exist on this site.

Back to our site

But the website works well on my local environment.

Thank you,

Could you link to your git repo?

link to my repo : GitHub - pdc-uottawa/PDCwebsite at DevCopy_Krishna

Try:

Build Command: npm run build

Publish Directory: /client if that doesn’t work try /client/public

Do you know where to edit these settings?

Hello,
When I tried the build command as npm run build it failed but when I tried it with CI= npm run build it worked, also I used the publish directory: /client/public it is published but the page doesnot show up, nothing when clicked on the link.

Thank you,
Achyuth Krishna

Did you try /client

yes, when tried /client it doesn’t show up either

when tried with /client it shows page not found.
