"Create new collection type" does not appear in production mode

System Information
  • Strapi Version v4.1.3:
  • Operating System:
  • Database postgresql 8.6.0:
  • Node Version 16.14.0:
  • NPM Version 8.3.1:
  • Yarn Version:

I’m using Strapi with version v4.1.3 with postgresql on heroku hosting.
If I start the Strapi in production mode the button “Create new collection type” does not appear on my strapi backend and i cannot create a new collection type. If I change the mode to development, “Create new collection type” is displayed, but the content
in the database are lost.

You can not create collection on production, only insert data

if you want to create then run strapi using : npm run develop not npm run start


Thanks! I had the same issue. I followed your advice and it worked.
