I'm trying to wall model following a path curve, so used array modifier, and used 'Fit curve' option

problem is

the wall model does not follow the curve path while duplicating the wall object like the first image(below)

I applied scale and rotation (Ctrl +a) and the T panel's number seems not wrong.enter image description here and I checked the origin of the object and curve several times. But I couldn't find the clue at all.

How can I fix this problem?

Thank you for your time and help in advance;

    $\begingroup$ the Array modifier with the Fit Curve won't make the object follow the curve, it will just adjust the amount of duplications so that the total length of the object is as long as the curve. To make the object follow the curve you need a Curve modifier as explained by Jachym Michal $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 17 at 14:35

It works better when you use the Curve modifier.

1) Go to Edit mode and rotate your mesh 90 degrees so it aligns better with the curve.
2) Set array modifier to Count or Length
3) Add a Curve Modifier and set the target to your curve.

Rotate your mesh in edit mode.

Set Array modifier to Count and add a Curve modifier enter image description here

Voilà!
