I’m migrating gitlab to a new box. The old installation has an earlier version (7.2.1) than the current version (7.13.mumble) and the backup from the older version won’t load on the new host, which has a current install.
I don’t want to upgrade on the old box if I can help it. It’s production, and I’d rather make any mistakes on the new box.
Any insight on getting 7.2.1 CE installed on the new box, running Ubuntu? I grabbed the 7.2.1 deb file and installed it (dpkg -i gitlab_7.2.1-omnibus.1-1_amd64.deb) but gitlab-ctl reconfigure fails on Chef.
ERROR: undefined method `=’ for nil:NilClass
FATAL: Chef::Exceptions::ChildConvergeError: Chef run process exited…
The chef stack trace appears to be failing in generate_secrets
block (2 levels) in generate_secrets' ..gitlab.rb:66:in each’
So, is there anything in the recipie for installing an older version of gitlab that I’m missing?
