I apologize if this question has already been answered and I’m just not finding it/using the wrong terminology in my searches. I have tried to find the answer searching YouTube tutorials, official documentation, and also this forum. I suppose I could assume the inability to find the answer is an answer in of itself but I just want to make sure.
I run a home file server for all of my documents. Just Ubuntu server on an old pc in the basement that I connect to via SMB with my various devices.
My folder structure is based on a main “Projects” folder and then individual “Project” sub-folders. The actual projects aren’t necessarily websites. They may just be images, or notes, or documents, etc.
My question is related to HUGO’s site creation.
Are you able to specify a specific location/folder for HUGO to create the website files in or do the sites/files have to be “in” the HUGO application/location?
Furthermore, if you are able to specify the location of the website/files does it matter which machine (server vs another pc/laptop on the network) is running HUGO? For the testing server to work I would think that HUGO would need to be running on the machine hosting the files, but then the chosen editor could be on any machine.
Thank you very much and I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience!
