I’m fairly new to Gitlab and need to upgrade our instance , I have a new server DR and followed the this link for the install - Download and install GitLab | GitLab
Every step worked fine until I got to this step - Add the GitLab package repository and install the packages
Was getting issues trying to get to the site so as plan B I decided to get the Gitlab ce image from a different server via nexus and pull it onto my DR server and that worked. I managed to start the container and Gitlab via this command
Sudo podman run --detach
–hostname my hostaname
–publish 443:443 --publish 80:80 --publish 22:22
–env GITLAB_CONFIG=“external_url ‘https://example.co.za/’;”
I’m able to start Gitlab via Browser BUT I cannot get LDAP working this way…
We are using Podman instead of Docker just as a note.
I have tried to add the Gitlab.rb with the LDAP configurations but it does not seem to work or read that file.
Is there a way to add LDAP and Other features using this way of installing Gitlab ?
