Need Help restoring gitlab-ce with just a copy of /var/opt/gitlab


#1

I had a space problem with my server and after some bad decisions I ended with just a copy of /var/opt/gitlab/ directory (22GB)

The steps I had followed are:

  1. Install gitlab-ce in the new server
  2. Edit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb: I changepostgresql[‘data_dir’], postgresql[‘dir’], postgresql[‘home’], and git_data_dirs to point to the backed up locations.
    3.- Reconfigure Gitlab

But it seams nothing happend the web page is asking me to create a user as in a new installation
