But i’m still unable to edit my content type :


Strapi is in production mode, editing content types is disabled. Please switch to development mode by starting your server with strapi develop.

I have not found the right command to start strapi in a Node azure app service : every thing else than β€˜npm start’ fails.

I have already done some researches on the forum and found this one [Strapi Admin showing strapi is in production despite using development mode] but it did not helped: using npx strapi develop as command to start failed with the message :

requireStack: [ '/home/site/wwwroot/node_modules/.bin/strapi' ]

Could someone successfully using strapi in a node app service help me to correctly configure mine ?
Thanks in advance.
