I am running into problems trying to use the ‘Mirroring Repositories’ function under Repository Settings (https://gitlab.com/User/Repository/settings/repository).
My repository is located on a CentOS 7.x VPS.
- Under git repository url, I add my SSH link: ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:22/path/to/repository (where 22 is my custom port no.)
- Mirror direction - Pull
- I click ‘Input host keys manually’ then add the provided entries to ~/.ssh/known_hosts
- Authentication Method - SSH Public Key. Paste to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
- Click Mirror Repository. An error comes up without any helpful info (now it just says import took longer than 54000 seconds).
Hoping somebody can help me out. I have no problems cloning the repo via Git Bash using the above ssh link.
