I need some help with a self hosted gitlab-ce install. The server running our previous instance died and I am trying to set things up on a new machine. The gitlab version for the most recent backup we have is 8.17. My understanding (and please correct me if I’m wrong) is that the installed version of gitlab has to be the same as the version used to create the backup in order to do a restore. So that means I need to find an omnibus package for gitlab-ce of version 8.17.
When I try to actually track down the correct package though, I can’t seem to find one that matches my OS ( Ubunutu Bionic 18.04). The oldest version of gitlab listed for that distro is v10. If I try to do an apt-get install for gitlab I get a message saying ‘version not found’.
Please help, I have no clue how to proceed from here.
