I am facing the problem that I am always redirected to the ip address of my server. I found already several suggestions how to solve it, but nothing worked so far.
I did not setup ngnix
The only setting changed is:
Does anyobody know, what could be the problem?
external_url to work as expected, you’ll need to set up a DNS A record that points to the IP address.
Can you confirm you have set a DNS A record for
external_url that points to the GitLab Server IP?
Additionally, if you’ve made any changes to
gitlab.rb, you must first run
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure before the changes are applied. If you haven’t already done so, please run
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure and let us know if this resolves the problem.
thank you very much. It was indeed the DNS A record.
Now everything is working smoothly.
