How can I tell if I have an ominbus installation or not?

Hi all,

Users I support are running GitLab Community Edition 10.2.5 on RHEL 7 and an NGINX security vulnerability revealed that no one had been updating/maintaining the app in a long time. I have been maintaining the host operating system, installing software and security updates so I plan to update and maintain the application going forward. How can I confirm if the current installation is an omnibus installation? Thank in advance!


Easiest way would be:

rpm -qa | grep -i gitlab

if you get a result for gitlab-ce, then it would mean you have an omnibus installation, since it would be installed via yum/rpm.
