HUGO

Hugo is crashing upon start of "Hugo server -D" when serving a lot of images

Before opening an issue on GitHub I wanted to ask if someone had the same problems as I do.

$ hugo version
Hugo Static Site Generator v0.75.1/extended darwin/amd64 BuildDate: unknown

I’m migrating my private blog from WordPress to Hugo and do experience crashes every time I start hugo server -D when having a lot of images in the working folder. When removing them, everything works fine. When copying only some of them, everything is fine as well.

I tried it using several different themes with the same results.

Welcome to Hugo! Can you post a link to your repo? Then we can test end easier see what the problem is.

Hi frjo, thank you.

We’re talking about the whole website, right? There’s about 750 MB of data in it because of all the images. I didn’t setup a repository so far but I could. Is there a preferred platform, like GitHub, GitLab or anything else?

Oh, btw, is there any sensitive data I should remove from any of the config files before uploading them to a public Git repository?

I mostly use GitHub myself but it doesn’t really matter.

There should be anything sensitive to worry about unless you have put it there.

Here it is: https://github.com/ulfklose/blog.ulfklose.de

Thanks for your help.

I see that the folder of the theme you are using is empty. we will need to see that. there seems to be an issue with processing something

Can you try hugo server --renderToDisk and see what happens.

That might be because I did something wrong while committing to the Git repository as some themes are submodules while others aren’t as far as I understood so far. The behavior doesn’t change when changing the theme in use so I guess it’s not a theme related problem.

Meh.

OK, I read this a little fast.

Seems like it’s the file watcher that crashes, presumably … too many files. Not sure.

Can you try one more time with:

hugo server --watch=false
1 Like

I used this minos theme https://github.com/carsonip/hugo-theme-minos since to theme files was included but could not replicate the issue.

Some unrelated suggestions for your site:

  1. Move /content/wp-content/… to /static/wp-content/…. Content is stuff that needs to be rendered, everything in the static dir will just be copied as is.
  2. Set unsafe too true for the goldmark renderer. This allows the HTML you have in posts.
  3. Remove the stray config file in the content dir.
markup:
  goldmark:
    renderer:
      unsafe: true

This actually helped. The site is working now. Thank you.

Thank you for the hints. The stray config file was generated by a script I used to export my WordPress instance to Hugo. I deleted it.

I moved all the images and videos to /static and replaced every occurrence in the generated Markdown files with the new path. That should be it, right?

Where do I have to put this?

config.yaml (or similar in config.toml)

I have what appears to be the same problem.

@bep’s suggestion of:

hugo server --watch=false

does allow the website to load.

We have been using Hugo to render a very large website since 2017, so I guess we must have just crossed some threshold with the number of files.

My specific question: we have a lot of images files included alongside the markdown pages, so that they can be used as page resources. I could probably devise a different strategy for these, by placing them in the static folder. Is this likely to make a difference?

I do have the same issue. So the problem is with too many files? Moving files to static would help resolve the issue?
