Gitlab-CE - cannot create redis.socket File

Hello Community and Developers,

I gave up after several days of my Gitlab CE examinations, because I can not go on alone so.

I have completely reinstalled Gitlab several times, but there are problems with the “redis” and “redis.socket” files. This is not created automatically by the installation and so Gitlab shows me in the frontend under 503 Error.

Which logs do you need to help me? Since I can read them with “gitlab-ctl tail” like.

I hope that someone can help me. Thanks in Advance.

It’s often better to guess what readers need, rather than asking, since if a question is incomplete, readers may just skip. Those are the (unwritten) rules at Stack Overflow, and to some degree they’re human nature, so they probably apply here too.

Are there logs that show this? If so, show those ones.

Sorry, that my question is not complete. Here I have managed for the first time to contact you. On your part mentioned community is all offtopic, at least it is very tricky to ask questions there. Thank you for your time.

Great stuff. OK, so a good technique is to get part of your error message, and incorporate it in a web search for “Gitlab”. Something like this:

There are evidently some good matches there - any of them any good?
