Deploy SSR + RSC to

I had posted in here a couple months back, but wanted to circle around as that repo was just SSR:

I know the ticketing badge site used SSR and RSC, but I am having some trouble going between the files Fly generates automatically when you run:

fly launch

vs. the new Docker docs:
Redwood Docker Docs

vs. the ticketing badge app repo:
Redwood Conf Ticketing Badge App

I have my test repo here:

I can get it to “deploy” but it just has a 404 error for anything happening and doesn’t actually return content and eventually shuts the machine down after 10 restart attempts.

I am pretty sure it is more my lack of experience with Fly and Docker than anything else, but I am wondering if there is something I need to do to fly.toml, Dockerfile, or the fly, and to get this live!

I have the fly.toml here just trying to use sqllite to get this live:

app = 'may-rsc-app'
primary_region = 'lax'

  build-target = "api_fe_serve"

  release_command = '.fly/'

  DATABASE_URL = 'file://data/sqlite.db'
  MIGRATE_ON_BOOT = 'true'
  PORT = '8910'

  source = 'data'
  destination = '/data'

  internal_port = 8910
  force_https = true
  auto_stop_machines = true
  auto_start_machines = true
  min_machines_running = 0
  processes = ['app']

  memory = '1gb'
  cpu_kind = 'shared'
  cpus = 1

the Dockerfile here I am definitely not too sure on:

ARG BASE_IMAGE=node:20-bookworm-slim
FROM ${BASE_IMAGE} as base

# Required for building the api and web distributions
ENV NODE_ENV production

    ENV NODE_ENV=production

    COPY .fly .fly

    ENTRYPOINT ["sh"]
    CMD [".fly/"]

Some notes of things I had to edit to get the app to this stage where it is deploying but deploying wrongly:

In the in the .fly I had to change port to webPort thanks to Jace on this once:

set -ex

if [ -n $MIGRATE_ON_BOOT ]; then
  $(dirname $0)/

npx rw-server --webPort ${PORT} $@

in my redwood.toml I had to add a host to make sure host set correctly:

  title = "Redwood App"
  host = ''
  port = 8910
  apiUrl = "/.redwood/functions" # You can customize graphql and dbauth urls individually too: see
  includeEnvironmentVariables = [
    # Add any ENV vars that should be available to the web side to this array
    # See
  port = 8911
  host = ''
  open = true
  versionUpdates = ["latest"]

  enabled = true

  enabled = true

It gave me some error on the FatalErrorPage because it was called DevFatalErrorPage. I had to change it to:

const FatalErrorPage =
  DevFatalErrorPage ||
  (() => (

in App.tsx it also was being weird with only building if I used dot notation vs. naming the folder directly:

import FatalErrorPage from './pages/FatalErrorPage'
import Routes from './Routes'

import FatalErrorPage from 'src/pages/FatalErrorPage'
import Routes from 'src/Routes'

So now I am getting logs on that look like it is deploying, but I do not see html coming back just 404 errors:

I feeeeeeeeel like this is mostly me not being used to Docker and that I need to do a build step before serving with RSC + SSR and I do not think that is happening correctly or else I should at least get html back over the wire.
If you have any suggestions give me a holler. Otherwise I think I am deep diving Docker this weekend haha.

Hey @QuinnsCode :wave:

I recently published our bighorn website on fly and it wasn’t a nice JustWorks experience like you highlight.

One thing I did have to do was switch from:

COPY --from=web_build /home/node/app/web/dist /home/node/app/web/dist


COPY --from=web_build /home/node/app/web /home/node/app/web

The full branch for that is GitHub - redwoodjs/bighorn-website at fly where you can see the Dockerfile and fly setup if you want to.

If you could try that change and see if it helps. I’ll try to work through your files here and see if I can spot anything else too.

Alright just so I remember and if others follow I do find myself needing to call fly deploy using my file path or else it won’t take changes as well as --no-cache

fly deploy -c /Users/path/to/project's/fly/toml/fly.toml --no-cache

Should it also avoid /dist for api?

COPY --chown=node:node --from=api_build /home/node/app/api/dist /home/node/app/api/dist
COPY --chown=node:node --from=api_build /home/node/app/api /home/node/app/api

I then seem to hit problems with it finding rw-serve-fe and rw-server:

Tried advice from here:

changed slightly to build web and build specifying ports as well in the .fly/

node ./node_modules/.bin/rw-serve-fe --port 8910 &
node ./node_modules/.bin/redwood serve api --port 8910
node ./node_modules/.bin/redwood serve api --port 8910 &
node ./node_modules/.bin/redwood serve web --port 8910

It seems to then hit errors where i may also be looking for the files in /dist. These are where it error in fly logs:
