I don’t understand. You have the omnibus package installed and after that you run “yum install gitlab-ce”? Then it is expected that yum gets the newest version.
You can run the install with a specific version number (for instance: if you have to revert to a backup and have to run a previous version) you do that with “yum install gitlab-ce-10.x.y”. This will not prevent yum from trying to update gitlab on unless you add a “yum update --disablerepo=gitlab_gitlab-ce”.

Hi bartj,

My Question: how can i stop Gitlab server to update automatically? i mean i want to keep the current version 10.5.2

Note: i didn’t update in my OS .

If you didn’t update your OS, it might get done automatically. Search for yum in /etc/cron* ( “grep -R yum /etc/cron*” and look what’s in the root crontab: crontab -l).
Gitlab doesn’t automatically update as far as I know (I have to update regularly and it isn’t done automatically).
Also, can you show your cronjob for the backups?

Also, I believe it is advised to keep up to date (for features as well as security reasons).
