503 Service Unavailable for GitLab CI


I’m trying to get GitLab CI set up on our self-hosted GitLab server. The problem that I’m running into is a 503: service unavailable error. Here is a bit about our setup: Nginx is disabled and we use Apache to reverse proxy pass the GitLab URL to What I’ve done for GitLab CI is created another virtual host file that also reverse proxy passes the CI URL to a different port (8182) at The gitlab.rb contains the following configuration for GitLab CI, in their appropriate places:

ci_external_url 'https://gitlab-ci.hampshire.edu'
gitlab_ci['gitlab_server'] = { "url" => 'https://gitlab.hampshire.edu', "app_id" => 'our_id', "app_secret" => 'our_secret' }
ci_unicorn['listen'] = ''
ci_unicorn['port'] = 8182
ci_nginx['enable'] = false

One thing I’ve noticed when running gitlab-ctl reconfigure is that the gitlab-ci_disable chef recipe runs. I’m not sure if this is correct or not. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!
