My GitLab appliance on DigitalOcean finally ran out of space, so I attached a block storage volume,
I then updated the gitlab.rb lfs-storage path to the new location (mounted in /mnt/git01/lfs-storage), copied the old storage over, reconfigured and restarted. Out of necessity I also removed the old lfs-storage directory.
After this when trying to push LFS files GitLab has a write error. I also cannot pull LFS assets so it seems like it cannot read either.
I also tried reverting the path and mounting the lfs-storage volume in the original lfs-storage location (I believe it was /var/opt/lfs-storage) but this also did not work.
I created a new GitLab appliance instance on DigitalOcean and attached another block-storage volume and had the exact same results pushing an existing repo to it.
Please help! Is this a DigitalOcean or a GitLab problem? I desperately need the repo working again.
