Failing to push files to Pavlovia after removing an experiment from GitHub

I managed to upload a simple priming experiment to Pavlovia and pilot it succesfully. I then removed it in GitHuB. I’m using 2020.1.3

When I tried to upload a similar experiment from the same root folder location, I get the ‘404 Not Found nginx’. I followed the same steps, Export HTML - Run the study online. PsychoPy asks me to (re)create a project, I give it a name and a description and am then met by the 404. The experiment doesn’t appear on my experiments list.

This is the output PsychoPy gives me

Deleting the local .git repository and HTML folder did the trick.
