Buildfile and Procfile when deploying program to aws

My question is similar to this one and I have followed the suggestions from the last comment in this question Deploying a simple GoLang Application to AWS Elastic Beanstalk . I am however still getting an error with the following, I know that there is something I must be doing wrong in this process

application.go:7:2: cannot find package “” in any of:

My code structure is this ![27 AM|690x135]



go get
go build -o bin/application application.go

My buildfile.text
make: ./

My Procfile.text
web: bin/application

I am new to this but the only thing I can think of it that maybe the buildfile and/or Procfile might need a different extension .

I then use zip …/ -r * .[^.]* to zip my project and upload it to AWS but it always fails once it gets done uploading . With the message that it can not find package . Is there something I’m missing with this process … my code compiles locally and this is how it looks

package main

import (

func main() {
	r := mux.NewRouter()
	r.HandleFunc("/testping", Controllers.TestPing)
	http.Handle("/", r)

	r.PathPrefix("/").Handler(http.StripPrefix("/", http.FileServer(http.Dir("public"))))
	srv := &http.Server{
		ReadTimeout:  20 * time.Second,
		WriteTimeout: 20 * time.Second,
		IdleTimeout:  120 * time.Second,
		Addr:         ":5000",


For me reads as if build- and proc files are ignored when there is a bin/application.go as it is mentioned first in the list of bulletpoints how your application is tried to get built.

Try to rename it and change your buildfiles accordingly.

Disclaimer: never used AWS, this is solely based on my understanding of the documentation linked above.
