Page Not Found error: 404


I am new to Next.js and have built my first app.

I am having trouble with a Page Not Found 404 error on my app. Which seems to have deployed successfully on Netlify.

Here is my site.

I have read the Page Not Found Support article, but i’m still not sure what to do.

when i run ‘npm run build’ i see the below in my terminal:

I can see that it can’t find the home page '/_not-found ’ and wondering if this is the issue. I am using Next.js 14.2.3

I have tried making a netlify.toml file with the below code but that is also not working

from = "/*"
to = "/index.html"
status = 200

Here is a link to the github repo

Any help would be much appreciated.

@melech I don’t work with Next.js so cannot advise why it’s happening, or how to fix it from a Next.js perspective, but I can give you an understanding of what I see happening locally, which matches the deployed files on Netlify.

When I pull your repository and execute npm run build I see only:


It creates a .next/ folder that contains only:


Those files do exist on Netlify:

So you’re seeing Netlify’s default 404 page because there is both no index.html file deployed and seemingly nothing dynamic that would catch and handle that route request.

ok, thank you for that. I will try and investigate what’s going on.

@melech Whatever is occurring for you appears to also be the case for this user too:

They have the same files visible.

could the issue be my current build settings in Netlify?

build command: next build
publish directory: .next

in my package.json file my scripts are:

 "scripts": {
    "dev": "next dev",
    "build": "next build",
    "start": "next start",
    "lint": "next lint",
    "check-node-version": "node -v"


I checked your build locally, using npm run build and it produces only those three files for me.

Try pulling your repository down into a new folder on your system, install the dependencies and run npm run build for yourself and check what you see.

Ok I solved the issue!

i have to run

npm install @netlify/plugin-nextjs

Then i entered the below in my .toml

  command = "npm run build"
  publish = ".next"

  package = "@netlify/plugin-nextjs"

I added the below to my next.config.js file

// next.config.js
module.exports = {
  reactStrictMode: true,
  // Any other Next.js configuration options

I made sure my package.json had the below:

"scripts": {
  "build": "next build"

then i pushed and deployed and it worked!

@melech Great work!

It’s all too “Next.js specific” for my tastes, especially as even with your changes the build doesn’t work for me locally :person_shrugging:
