Restore same gitlab version - different Centos version


Let say I have;

system A: gitlab 12.3 (omnibus el6 package) installed on CENTOS 6
system B: gitlab 12.3 (omnibus el7 package) installed on CENTOS 7

Is it safe to restore a system A backup on system B ?

The documentation says;
–You can only restore a backup to exactly the same version and type (CE/EE) of GitLab on which it was created.–

I have the same gitlab version but from different elx packages, would this be an issu ?


Same version means same semantic versioning number X.Y.Z. The underlying OS does not matter as long as gitlab components are installed correctly… You can even restore on Debian or Ubuntu of you wish.
