Changing gitlab backup location not working

I’m trying to change the backup location to a shared location so I can archive the backups on a different server. Here is how I tried to do it with no luck.

sudo gedit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
Then modified it to say gitlab_rails[‘backup_path’] = ‘/mnt/backups’
That folder has chmod 777 permissions
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create

When I do that it still puts the backups at /var/opt/gitlab/backups

I know this worked in older versions. Something tells me it is now broken in 9.1.1
Am I doing something wrong here or is this functionally now broken?

I’m an idiot, remove the # to uncomment gitlab_rails['backup_path']
