Error with gradio application with openai

Hello everyone, yesterday I created a simple app in hugging face platform. The app is just a gradio chat integrated with openai.

The app was working fine yesterday however today everytime I try to ask something to the chat it gives the following error:

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Not sure why today is having that error

Any idea?

I also have the same application in a virtual machine and it works fine there, the only place it does not work is in huggingface

Thanks in advance!

probably related to Build error without log and others like it.

Hey thanks for the reply. I restarted the space and the app was built without any errors. The errors appeared when I interacted with the chatbot

Oh yay! My spaces are now building too. :slight_smile: [party!]

Now it works, looks like it was something related to huggingface environment :slight_smile:
