Hi @lunaludwig,

I just cloned the starter and was able to deploy it fine, without issues. This error might be due to some custom changes and would suit more on the starter’s GitHub repo. We cannot provide support on code-level unfortunately.

That’s really strange, I couldn’t deploy it before making any changes (An error is thrown if you haven’t updated the siteURL) . Then when I did make changes I only did what was listed in the Read Me file.

A programmer did take a look for me, they believe it isn’t working because my Ghost CMS is local. I thought I’d read others had set this up with locally hosted ghost too but I must have got that wrong.

I appreciate that you’ve tried. I’m going to move on to a different starter file without CMS :slight_smile:

Thanks

I just added SITEURL as an environment variable when connecting the repo to a new website. So, I didn’t have to change it in code. Not sure if that affected it somehow.
