Config Files Gitlab Server Omnibus - too many redirects

In the image I change “after sign path” and “sign up enabled” and I dont remember if “home page url” too, but when I save changes and I am trying login to my server but the webbrowser tell me “too many redirects”

How can I change config file paramters to delete the changes?

Where can I find config files in the server?

Its imposible to login web and I can’t find config file with my lasta changes.

The Gitlab server is version 7.

Hi @cahedral and welcome! I noticed it’s been a couple weeks since you wrote in with your re-direct problem. Will you please confirm you are still seeing this? If you are, I will try and find a expert who has experienced this to help out. Thanks and talk soon!

Hi, This problem has not been resolved. My version of gitlab is 7.14.2.

For now I have restored my configuration. Because if I indicated the URL I was doing indefinite redirects.

Thanks

Hi,

the config for the external_url is located in /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb.

One thing I’d to suggest - upgrade from 7.x to 12.x, which allows to you to follow along in the documentation as well.

Cheers,
Michael

Do you hace any guide to migrate?

I wish deploy a new gitlab in a another server and migrate repos to New gitlab.

Can you guve an idea to start migration?

Hi,

I’d investigate on the docs (Google has some more insights with “gitlab migrate”).

https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/project/import/
https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/raketasks/backup_restore.html

I don’t think that you can escape the upgrade though, so best would still be performing the incremental upgrade steps if that’s possible. With a backup taken first, you should be safe.

Cheers,
Michael
