It’s a default Ghost install, no changes were made besides in the above guide. I didn’t imagine it being that heavy to build longer than 15min… (increase build time request?) or is something else wrong/getting stuck?
Based on what I’m seeing, the answer is yes. There is a large time jump in logs:
9:01:51 PM: success Writing page-data.json files to public directory - 0.003s - 4/4 1329.18/s
9:36:30 PM: Build exceeded maximum allowed runtime
Unfortunately, we don’t seem to have enough information to troubleshoot yet. I suspect that if we can get a build to complete, we’ll get more information in the deploy logs and hopefully we’ll find something we can use.
To facilitate that, I’ve increased the build timeout on that site to 40 minutes. Could you re-deploy and see if the build completes now? Assuming it does, we should look at the logs again and see if we can determine what’s causing that timing issue.
I don’t see anything in that blog with the quote you mentioned, so it’s impossible for me to speak to your comment around “that blog”. I guess you could ask its author if you want some feedback since of course that isn’t Netlify’s content and we don’t know it
That error message has tons of possible reasons, please read this article around debugging your site build:
