I’m just experimenting with running Gitlab in a Linux Container (LXD, using CE Ombibus 13.10.3-ce.0 at the moment in a Debian Buster container). It appears to work and it was easy to install it.
I’d just like to confirm where the important data resides that needs to be saved if the container is to be dropped and recreated. From my experiments, I have the following two directories:
I have successfully rebuilt a new container, placing those two directories into it before installing Gitlab. The only difference to a new install appears to be that it says it isn’t configured and it doesn’t run the configure task. So I run “gitlab-ctl reconfigure” and everything then seems to work fine.
I just want to check if I have missed anything ?
