404 after deploying git repo, no user access policy active, custom domain proxied

I think I am doing everything right:

  1. deployed git repository without any build commands
17:32:52.583	Using v2 root directory strategy
17:32:52.606	Success: Finished cloning repository files

  1. but the pages.dev URL is giving me a 404.

I did not make any changes to access policy

What can I try to troubleshoot?

solved this myself by renaming .htm to .html

that was not really obvious and not clarified in the documentation.

kind of funny that almost all extensions are 3 letters but no, the html extension insists on 4, lol
