  • 1.  Creating node.js through cloud foundry

    Posted Mon July 11, 2022 11:14 AM

    I'm taking the IBM Cloud Full stack developer course and I am in the process of completing a final project for a module. However, I've come across an issue that I cannot seem to solve and there is no one in the coursera community with a solution so here I am. I would love to continue with my project and continue on my full stack Journey. Below is my issue. Any help or suggestion(s) are welcome!

    Creating a node.js through cloud foundry yields an "app failed to start" prompt. I've followed all instructions, cleared cache even downloaded chrome to test and it just doesn't seem to work. I've attached images. 

    NOTE: My org and space are US east as I am in the US east. I do have a trial version through the organization providing the course.

    Hi @Rodolfo Gomez,

    Hope you are well.

    Based on the error in the screenshots provided, you need to change the "Host name" to a unique value. Since the hostname will form of part of your publicly accessible URL, it is required to be unique within the domain.

    Hope that helps!​

    Hello Stephen, am taking similar course but haven't been able to create a cloud foundry so far. Keep getting the error message saying no space in my region and directing me to create cloud foundry org which also isn't working. 

    I have tried to update my account to pay as you go incase that is required to proceed (We were offered a trial account initially), haven't been able to add card successfully also getting the error message

    "Could not place order. Problem authorizing the credit card. We are unable to process your request: Transaction Rejected. Please contact Cloud Trust Enablement at for further information.
    I don't know how to proceed with this course.
    Can't create cloud foundry per no space
    Can't create cloud foundry org, Save button not taking me to anywhere when clicked
    Can't use my credit card to upgrade my account
