last week

Hi !

When adding payload cloud plugin to my config,

payloadcloud cannot build properly with the following error :

export default buildConfig({
  plugins: [payloadCloud()],
  admin: {
    bundler: webpackBundler(),
  serverURL: "",
  editor: slateEditor({}),
  localization: {
    locales: ["fr"],
    defaultLocale: "fr",
  collections: [Users, Structures, Media],
  db: mongooseAdapter({
    url: process.env.MONGODB_URI,

    "ts-node": "^9.1.1",
    "typescript": "^4.8.4"

I cannot find a way to make it works...

So I have 404 when retrieving my media from my external frontend

To give more context, this is to use File storage.

More info so far :

- Even when I delete the content of plugins and import from the config, I still have the error when the depedence is present in the package.json

The error comes from the lib copyfiles afaik

I replaced copyfiles with cpx and now it works fine.
