404 when executing docker push

Hi

I have installed gitlab-ce on my own server and the container-registry was immediately available. When I try to push a docker-image to the container registry I get a:

what is that? I mean I can login successfully, so why the 404?

in my gitlab.rb I have

external_url 'https://git.xxxxxxxx.com'
nginx['enable'] = true
nginx['client_max_body_size'] = '250m'
nginx['redirect_http_to_https'] = true

nginx['ssl_certificate'] = "/etc/gitlab/trusted-certs/xxxxxxxx.com.crt"
nginx['ssl_certificate_key'] = "/etc/gitlab/trusted-certs/xxxxxxxx.com.key"
nginx['ssl_protocols'] = "TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2"

in the config.yml i have:

Hi Y’all – I also am having this issue: docker login succeeds, the push fails with this 404 error (both from the command line and as part of a CI process). I’ve experienced this behavior with both v12.10 and v13.2; with my user/pass and also user/token (as well as nonce CI credentials). I’m the owner of the repository (“docker/testbuild” so no special characters or anything there) and an admin of the GitLab CE installation. My configuration with regard to the container registry is the installation default. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

Following up my own post:

It turns out I didn’t read the documentation throughly enough (or my reading comprehension was sub-optimal). Uncommenting these parameters and re-configuring GitLab seems to have solved my issue:

registry_external_url 'https://gitlab.example.com:5050'

### Settings used by GitLab application
gitlab_rails['registry_enabled'] = true
gitlab_rails['registry_host'] = "gitlab.example.com"
gitlab_rails['registry_port'] = "5050"

This all makes sense really. There’s no reason a docker push to an HTTPS port should do anything useful.
