LiteFS + Docker deployed but app does not stay up

I have deployed an app successfully with that works well, then I tried to add litefs and connect to it with no success at all, the app keeps dying and I cant even debug…


  dir: "/litefs"

  dir: "/var/lib/litefs"

exit-on-error: false

  addr: ":8080"
  target: ""
  db: "db"
    - "*.ico"
    - "*.png"

  - cmd: "uvicorn books.main:app --host --port 9000 --proxy-headers"

  type: "consul"
  advertise-url: "http://${HOSTNAME}.vm.${FLY_APP_NAME}.internal:20202"
  candidate: ${FLY_REGION == PRIMARY_REGION}
  promote: true

    url: "${FLY_CONSUL_URL}"
    key: "litefs/${FLY_APP_NAME}"


app = 'books-pyapi'
primary_region = 'ams'

  dockerfile = ""

  DB_PATH = "/litefs/db"

  internal_port = 8080
  force_https = true
  auto_stop_machines = true
  auto_start_machines = true
  min_machines_running = 0
  processes = ['app']

  size = 'shared-cpu-1x'

  source = "litefs"
  destination = "/var/lib/litefs"

Hi… It looks like you may not have copied litefs.yml into your Machine’s root filesystem.

(I wish litefs would identify itself more in its error messages.)

Typically, this would happen in your

Hope this helps!

Added litefs

You nailed it, thanks!
Maybe that part of the doc could be more explicit, I got a bit confused.
