Deploy Failed


#1

I’m a newbie here. Just learn how to deploy the first project with Hugo on Netlify. Below are errors that I’ve got.

#2

Did you set up your Netlify project to use Hugo? Because here in the log Netlify downloads and uses Node, Ruby, and PHP, and none of those are needed with Hugo.

I suspect your Netlify project tries to build a Hugo website with other software than Hugo.


#3

I believe Netlify installs those things for its internal stuff… you will find the “installing Hugo” command at the end of all those other installs.


#4

This seems to be the meat of the issue… the OP probably hasn’t committed the content dir.


#5

Just confirmed that – See https://github.com/jenwit/myhugoproject ; content/ is not committed to the repo.

@jenwit


#6

Thank you very much kaushalmodi. It works now!


#7

Not sure why you would put this in content… but OK :slight_smile:


#8

I’m going to take a stab and guess that as a beginner, @jenwit doesn’t know about .gitkeep and wanted to put something up there maybe? If so, @jenwit, you can remove the dummy text file and replace it with a system file title .gitkeep (or even .keep, I believe) so that git will check in your otherwise empty directory. HTH:)


#9

You’re right rdwatters! I just learn from you that I should use .gitkeep. Thanks! :slight_smile:
