Re: result::failure -4 when deploying

Replying to my own issue here, I read on another thread here that someone else succeeded in fixing this by doing a security reset and reload.


I tried that and it has worked, but it seems like a major pain in the a$$ to have to resolve the issue this way.

Re: result::failure -4 when deploying

When the storage space in Playbook is less than 1.5G, the "failure -4" problem would happen when you deploy an app. So please delete some useless files, then it would be fine.

try to restart your playbook, and deploy again..
