Has something changed in the Build Worker Image

I have just made a VERY simple change to a blog post, and now my Octopress site, which was building perfectly, is now failing and complaining about a completely separate blog post.

This build worked:


And this build failed:


(ok, it didn't actually fail, but there is some big red text towards the bottom :-))

The change that I made was minimal:


And as you will see, on a completely separate blog post, from the one that is failing the generation process in Octopress.

The only things that I can think are happening are:

  1. Something has changed in the build worker machine
  2. My build cache has become corrupt

Are you able to help?

Is there a way from the UI for us to reset the build cache?

    The build cache is getting updated when its folder's CRC changed: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/GaryEwanPark/gep13-github-io/build/1.0.67#L558

    Sorry, I am not sure what you mean?!?

    Are you saying I would only see line 558 if something is different in the build cache?

    I have just started another build with no build caching to try to rule out that as the problem.

    Okay, with the build caching disabled, the rake generate succeeded?!?!


    Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

    The first build that I noticed it on was 2 hours ago. But before that, I hadn't run a build in over 2 days.

    Hmm, I am not sure that this would have caused the issue, I had a number of successful builds on the 18th, 19th, and 20th.

    I will keep an eye on it, and if it happens again, I will get back in touch.
