How to backup my Gitlab instance


I installed a Gitlab on my RPi3 following this manual. This is running perfectly fine. Unfortunately I cannot find described, which folder I need to backup to backup this server.

Except the config files my /etc/gitlab folder is empty.

Could you please assist me with this?

Kind regards

We’re using gitlab-ce on centos, but I expect the defaults to be the same, which would be # gitlab_rails[‘backup_path’] = “/var/opt/gitlab/backups”. This is used by gitlab-rake. You should be able to search in your gitlab.rb file to find the backup_path value. As said, that is the default and can be altered.
