Dodge Ram 1500 won’t start after oil pan change?

After replacing the oil pan gasket, my Dodge Ram 1500 will not start. It tries to but it doesn’t start. I’ve added oil and added starter fluid.

Please help.

Update:

What I meant was the vehicle turns over but fails to run

    Check for spark with a spark tester while cranking.  Check for trouble codes with a scanner.  Good luck.

    some late models have an oil level detector that will prevent the engine starting if the level is too low , if that is disconnected the engine cannot start, too much oil will also stop it starting due to hydraulic lock

    Coincidence. Look for other causes.

    Just changing the pan gasket won't prevent it from starting. Look for things you may have disconnected, ie: retrace your steps.
