After setting up your application on localhost, it time to deploy your next js to your cPanel, but it's not without challenge

The first step would be to prepare your next.js web pages for to deploy as html files beside the other assets required, if you haven’t, check this link Setup next.js for static exporting


Then check your package.json build script to

“build”: “next build && next export”


The run the npm run build in your terminal

If you get an Error like this:

Image Optimization using Next.js’ default loader is not compatible with `next export`.

Then create a next.config.js if you haven’t already, and add the following script to module.exports

  images: {
    loader: ‘akamai’,
    path: ‘/’,

rexfont config nextjs


If the command is successful, then you should see a folder generated named out

And there should be static html files generated, such as index.html, like this:

rexfont out nextjs folder


now move the content of the folder or the whole folder to the directory of your cPanel as you wish such as the public_html

The next important step is to setup the .htaccess in your directory properly, so if you have copied the content of the out folder to the public_html for example, you can setup the .htaccess as the following query

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^ index.html [QSA,L]
