No gitlab page after installation

I installed gitlab-ce on an Ubuntu 22.04 server. All went well (no errors). Then I set the external_url to ‘’ in /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb. (xxx is not the real tld).
Then I called sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure.
When trying in a browser a page opens with: “Ngnix is functioning normally”. I don’t get a Gitlab page.
Can someone point me to what I’m missing here?
Thank you!

Hi all,

Sorry to have bothered you. Its suddenliy functioning. I left to a meeting and after coming back I got the login screen.
Apparently it all needed some time.

Best regards,
