New to GitLab and the community but installed GitLab a few weeks ago for our company and migrated all of our repos off to the new system. Loving the product and happy to have moved.
I installed the Debian 7 package offered at the time (gitlab_7.7.2-omnibus.5.4.2.ci-1_amd64.deb). This seemed to install everything into /opt/gitlab/ and I have to use gitlab-ctl to start/stop the server etc. No big deal, just thought I would share a rough example of the environment that was setup when I did the install.
I noticed today that 7.8 is out and trying to stay up-to-date with everything as I go. However I’m not able to update per the instructions someone from IRC shot over to me. Nothing seems to quite match up as I don’t have a gitlab nor gitlab_ci service, etc.
The upgrade instructions I was looking at were:
which led me to:
However, nothing seems to line up with the way GitLab was installed to the system.
So, wondering a few things.
- What am I doing wrong and how might I go about upgrading what I have?
- If I do a fresh install on a new server (which I don’t really mind doing) what is the quickest way to migrate my repos from one server to another as I have about 15 users, 25 groups, and over 50 repos that need to move.
Thanks for any advice and/or guidance.
