Gitlab Pages Local Network

Hi everyone,

I recently installed Gitlab in a separated PC which should only host Gitlab and Mattermost in my company. It can only be accessed inside our LAN (for the moment should stay so).

I want to use Gitlab Pages and readed all the docs about it. I already got the runner working etc…

My question is: Can I use gitlab pages without a domain, e.i. only in our LAN? I already tried just setting the “pages external_url” = “” (Gitlab is available at without effort.

The generated project-page link is then http://root. but I get an ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED.

If I open I get the gitlab’s 404-Site.

Hope someone can give me some advice.
Thanks in advance


Did you manage to have Gitlab Pages running on your LAN?
