[Solved] Failed to health check repository: signal: killed


I get the message “Failed to health check repository: signal: killed” for the largest repository in my instance. Most probably this is because the health check runs to long.

What do I have to do to set a longer timeout?

Thanks for any hint


You can disable healthchecks for specific repos via the settings page for that repo.

Edit: Forgot to say you can change this setting via the config file see cron.repo_health_check section in the config file https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/config-cheat-sheet/

I changed the timeout from 60s to 120s and it seems to work now.

Thank you!
