GitLab Project Migration

Hi Support,

I am planning to migrate gitlab all project with user accounts from my current running GitLab server to another server.
I have setup a new GitLab server in my prod environment.Could you please guide me how can i migrate all the existing project with user accounts to my new GitLab server.

Thank You,
Subrat kumar.

NB: Ensure that both servers are running IDENTICAL versions of GitLab before you carry out this procedure. You can confirm this by checking the output of sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:env:info on both servers or by visiting the admin page on both servers.

  • Create a backup of your GitLab installation in your old server
  • Transfer this backup to the new GitLab server
  • Restore GitLab on the new server using the backup

Backup and Restore steps are covered on the documentation:
