If you are having problems when hitting the “Deploy to Netlify” button you may see around, here are some tips to get you started on debugging. That said, it can be q bit tricky for us debug exactly what is happening, as sometimes it’s a transient error unrelated to browser plugins.
Generally speaking, what that page is trying to do when you activate the button is this:
- create a repo on GitHub for you
- copy the content of the one-click-hugo-cms (or other) to your new repo
- deploy from it
The failure usually comes somewhere between steps 1 or 2 (or you would have gotten an error on a different page, not the one you are on.)
So, some questions:
- do you have a GitHub account already? If so, were you signed into it when you clicked the deploy to netlify button?
- If not, were you able to create a new GitHub account as part of the Deploy to Netlify prompts?
GitHub has some rate-limiting happening on their side too, so waiting 10 minutes and trying again may give better results. We recommend you give it another try after a short wait, hopefully while signed into your GitHub account, and let us know if that works any better?
