Cloudflare Pages - Zola build fails (GLIBCXX_3.4.26' not found)

When using ZOLA and with environment vars: ZOLA_VERSION 0.14.1 the build fails:

this is the build log:

This is a known issue with the 0.14.x builds of Zola. 0.13.x builds should work fine. I should re-poke the team about this issue


i have this problem

Any update on the resolution for this issue? I cannot downgrade to 0.13 for other reasons.

Hey there!

I’m using the static site generator Zola to build my website. Cloudflare Pages supports building Zola pages and specifying a Zola Version via an environment variable called ZOLA_VERSION. Unfortunately with the latest version 0.14.1 it doesn’t work, so I have to use 0.14.0 instead.

This is the error shown in the build logs:

zola: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by zola)
zola: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.29' not found (required by zola)
zola: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.26' not found (required by zola)
error Command failed with exit code 1

Could somebody look into this, so that Cloudflare users can use the latest version of Zola?


I’ve just realized that this is a duplicate of Cloudflare Pages - Zola build fails (GLIBCXX_3.4.26' not found). Will close this issue

@user12279 I’ve merged your topic to this one and re-opened it.

Without passing ZOLA_VERSION zola is not installed on build environment. With ZOLA_VERSION build fails:

Considering the first report was about a month ago and Zola is a supported framework, what is the current status of the bug?


If you remove Zola build command and build it on your side before pushing to GitHub it will deploy whatever you have.

Bump. When it will be fixed? Any workarounds to use the latest zola? Installing glibc manually?

Can you poke twice?

Also getting this error with version 0.15.x

I asked the team.


Did the team ever reply?

From the zola github repo it looks like the issue comes down to a problem with the version of GLIBC in your pages build images: GLIBC error when deploying version 0.14.1+ to Vercel or CloudFlare · Issue #1713 · getzola/zola · GitHub

Are there plans to use a more recent build image? Zola on Cloudflare Pages is not supported right now. This bug has been open for 6 months, and there have been 6 versions of Zola released since the last working version.

It’s mid June 2022, this is still an issue. You folks might as well remove the feature from the list, since it doesn’t work and apparently the Pages product manager doesn’t care about it.


This isn’t true, work is literally being done right now :slight_smile:
