Spinning Wheel of Death - Hosting Articulate Files in GCP

Hello - 

I am working on uploading Articulate Presenter Files into GCP (Google Cloud Platform) as a hosting site. I have had success with one file, however my latest attempt is prompting the spinning wheel of death.


This is what my computer monitor is showing for the past 20 minutes:

Spinning Wheel of Death

Any suggestions or reference points for Webhosting will be much appreciated!

Hi Simcha,

I haven't used Google Cloud hosting myself, but I know that we have a  video tutorial by Tom Kuhlmann on it, and it's just one of a few options mentioned in this article. 

Also, this blog post by community member, Mike Taylor, has a nice write up on all things Google Cloud hosting.  

Keep me posted!

My tutorial is the extend of my expertise with Google Cloud :)

A few thoughts though, if the link just spins there may be a permissions issue accessing the other files in other folders. That's something to explore.

Sometimes, files get corrupted when they get uploaded. That happened a lot to me when I was in school. You could delete and retry to see if that works.

Clear your browser cache, especially if using Chrome. I find that Chrome often hangs out to the content without playing the updated files.
