I’ve installed GitLab with Omnibus package on a CentOS 6.4. After setting the external_url in
/etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb and executing
gitlab-ctl reconfigure I was able to access the setup page at
http://my.ip.here/ without problems.
But, after changing the
external_url again to
http://my.ip.here:23080, I cannot access the login page, be it through
http://my.ip.here/; The page just timeouts. Reverting the
external_url back makes everything work again on port 80.
netstat shows ngnix is listening in
23080 and in fact telnet will connect to it. But no response is ever sent. Tailing the logs during the requests with
gitlab-ctl tail shows nothing.
What is the correct procedure to change the nginx port? What else needs to changed for GitLab to works in a non-standard port? How could I debug my issue?
Thanks in advance.
