Strapi image missiing

Everytime my strapi server restarts, the image is missing so I need to re-upload it. Is it normal or there’s something wrong with my setup? I use strapi public/uploads (local storage)

Please help.

I guess u deploy in an ephemeral environment (Ie. Docker container) so everytime u redeploy the env gets rebuilt and the local filesystem is lost

U tagged Digital Ocean, I think App Platform is built using Docker containers?

U might wanna choose a different upload providers (Cloudinary is a good option as its free)

Thank you so much! We’re planning to use aws for the prod and s3 for the image.

That should do it
