Can not access to repository "code = NotFound desc = GetRepoPath: not a git repository"

I run gitlab CE local normally but it suddenly lost data in repository, the webpage always show error 500.

the log sudo gitlab-ctl tail show error rpc error: code = NotFound desc = GetRepoPath: not a git repository :

Does anyone know how to fix this issue ?

A similar problem. It turned out that repositories were encrypted through an exploit in gitlab. There was a warning in the folder / srv / gitlab / gitlab / data / git-data

Thanks for this. Yeah, same thing happened to me…

It’s gonna be annoying to fix, but thankfully with how git is designed, pretty much all my stuff is somewhere…

Thanks MishaArmi. It hit me as well with a decryptor message once I saw your message and started looking.

Here is a link if anyone needs to understand it as well -
