GitHub Pages Not Deploying

Solved! Go to Solution.

I pushed some changes to my site around 2 hours ago. The changes have appeared in my repo but have not appeared on the actual website.


As a test, I've since tried adding a sentence to the very bottom of the about page of another website I have hosted on GitHub pages and again the change appears in my repo but does not appear on the website.


I've tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to refresh, incognito mode, different browsers and different machines but no joy.


Both sites are being built from the master-branch (and always have been) and in fact neither has any other branches so I know it is not that.


Any other ideas what could be wrong?

Re: GitHub Pages Not Deploying

I seem to be having a similar issue. It throws a 404 error when accessing


My github experience is limited, but it was working a few hours ago. However, whatever I'm trying to do now does not seem to affect the outcome.


Few things I have tried:

  • Added a blank space to index.html
  • changed the name of the repo
  • waited for an hour
  • Redeployed


Also, the environment page does not show a recent deployment. I would expect, if I publish a page, then there would be a recent deployment.

Same here. I found no page build in activity log under `environment`. It seems like a server issue, cause the Github Page has a `degraded performance` now. Current server status at .

A temp workaround:  disable the Github Page and then enable it again in repo `setting`. The page should be forced to rebuild. 


update: don't try disable the Github Page since the new build could last forever. And your page will report 404 during this time!

Thanks, I've just seen the 'degraded performance' message on the Status page. It didn't show anything earlier when I checked but agree this is probably the cause.

Re: GitHub Pages Not Deploying

I am having the same issue.

Reached out to support but have not heard back.

Looks like a server issue.

Re: GitHub Pages Not Deploying

Now that the servers have recovered, I checked to see if my github pages site was built. It wasn't so I had to make a very small change within the guthub source editor and committed straight to master. This restarted the build and now my site has been updated.
