Im using gitlab ce 7.11.4 on a ubuntu 14.04 server with desktop on our VPN at the moment and would like to move it to another ubuntu 14.04 headless server on a subdomain, and add LDAP integration.
Linux and Ruby are very much not in my wheelhouse, so I’d like to be very prepared before I begin!
For the move:
So far I am going by http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/raketasks/backup_restore.html. Should I be looking at other documents as well?
But I note that https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/omnibus-gitlab/blob/master/README.md#configuration mentions backing up the configuration. Is this required separately to the backup_restore rake, or does that cover the configuration as well?
Are SSH details carried as well in a backup_restore?
** For the subdoman**
After the omnibus install on the new server, I just need to edit the URL settings in gitlab.rb right? Then run
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure after?
For the LDAP
Is there a difference between
How can I match current users (non-LDAP) to LDAP users? Maybe this will only be possible if they have the same email address.
Hopefully all will go well and I can report any info discovered in trial & error here as well.
