    You can specify a name to use for a custom build directory to use instead of .next.

    Open next.config.js and add the distDir config:

    module.exports = {
      distDir: 'build',

    Now if you run next build Next.js will use build instead of the default .next folder.

    distDir should not leave your project directory. For example, ../build is an invalid directory.
