I recently installed gitlab on a new server, and restored a backup (I made sure to install the same version of the backup - 10.8.7). I got a 500 error when I’d log in.
I read a few issues and found some people resolved it by proceeding to run the upgrade, so I then ran the upgrade, which seemed to go smoothly. I still get a 500 error.
I am using username/password with no LDAP or Oauth
I ran the following commands:
yum install gitlab-ce-10.8.7 vim /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb # I changed the url to https gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:restore BACKUP=<My backup file> gitlab-ctl reconfigure gitlab-ctl restart
That seemed to go smoothly, but like I said, I could not log in
yum update gitlab-ctl upgrade gitlab-ctl reconfigure gitlab-ctl restart
This also seemed to go smoothly, but alas, still a 500
I’ll be happy to provide any other logs to help determine the problem/solution
