I want to deploy my Phalcon app (a portfolio website) to Heroku but I'm having some difficulties compiling it.
I've tried these buildpacks:
https://github.com/elct9620/heroku-buildpacks-php-with-phalcon (this one is deprecated)
I've also tried to create my own buildpack following this tutorial: https://www.sitepoint.com/install-custom-php-extensions-heroku/
Either the deployment fails with the error
Failed to resolve runtime requirements [...] (pre-receive hook declined), or it deploys but I recieve an application error when accessing the site with these logs:

Sorry if the solution seems obvious. If not, does anyone have recommendations for other deploy/host options? Preferably one that's affordable.
