How to deploy Meteor app to Digital Ocean


#1

Hello!

I am building an app on the Meteor platform, and my app repository is saved on Github. My server is Digital Ocean. I am trying to deploy commits made in Github to my remote server (website) without success. I tried three approaches, outlined below:

  1. I tried executing “git pull” in SSH, but after receiving the message " * branch HEAD -> FETCH_HEAD Already up-to-date" the website remained unchanged.

  2. I tried running “mupx”, which many recommend for use with Meteor, but I received an error message “Verifying deployment: FAILED”.

x Verifying deployment: FAILED

  1. I even tried doing “git pull” directly into the Digital Ocean server terminal, but once again received the message " * branch HEAD -> FETCH_HEAD, Already up-to-date. ", once again without any updates to the website.

Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong?

Thank you for your time!
