When I push to Aptible, Git says "Everything up-to-date." What should I do?

This message means that the local branch you’re pushing to Aptible is already at exactly the same revision as is currently deployed on Aptible. Here are a couple tips that may help in this case:

  • If you’ve already pushed your code to Aptible and simply want to restart the app, you can do so by running aptible restart using the Aptible CLI. If you want to trigger a new build from the same code you’ve already pushed, you can run aptible rebuild.
  • If you’re pushing a branch other than master, you must still push to the remote branch named master in order to trigger a build. Assuming you’ve got a Git remote named “aptible,” you can do this with a command like the following:

    git push aptible local-branch:master
