I’ve been using gitlab (on Debian Jessie, currently gitlab-ce 8.7.0-ce.0) for about a year now and I’m very happy with it. A colleague of mine asked me to download some code of mine, so I gave him access to my gitlab. For the first time the function “Download zip”, which downloads a snapshot of the source code, was tried. We discovered that it gives a zip file with size that is exactly zero.
I tried other types, like tar.gz and tar, but these give a blank page and nothing happens.
Could someone tell me whether this is a bug or a problem on my end and assist me in resolving this? Please feel free to ask for any additional information you require.
I would like to add that I previously had a problem that cloning from my gitlab https would give empty repositories. I resolved this issue using these lines in /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb:
nginx['enabled'] = false gitlab_git_http_server['listen_network'] = "tcp" gitlab_git_http_server['listen_addr'] = "localhost:8081"
