I recently had issues with launching an app, and decided to start over from scratch. I deleted all of my old apps, using
fly apps destroy, and after checking the dashboard, I confirmed that everything had been wiped.
I then tried to complete the Hands-on with Fly.io tutorial. I noticed that when using
fly launch and trying to specify the name, it would let me enter a name and then select the region for deployment, but upon finishing the command, I got the following:
Error: Validation failed: Name has already been taken
Even weirder was that upon looking at the dashboard, I found a randomly-named app sitting there. I was then able to
fly deploy and I could access the hostname of this from my browser. This same issue happens when I try to follow the Rails tutorial.
I also noticed that when selecting an Upstash Redis plan, I get the following when I try to select the free plan:
input:3: createAddOn You may only provision 1 Free plan per organization
It is worth noting that whether I am trying to name an app something entirely new, or naming it the same as an app I have previously deleted, it tells me there is already an app with that name.
I am assuming that all this is due to Fly taking time to update on which apps I have, and whether I have an app using the free plan for Upstash Redis, but I would like to ask three things:
- How long does it take the list of my apps to update?
- Is there anything I need to edit locally when deleting an app?
- Why am I being told I already have apps with certain names, when I’ve never used them before?
