Installing Go

Gogs requires Go 1.14 to compile, please refer to the official documentation for how to install Go in your system.

Set Up the Environment

We are going to create a new user called git and set up everything under that user:

sudo adduser --disabled-login --gecos 'Gogs' git

Compile Gogs

# Clone the repository to the "gogs" subdirectory
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/gogs/gogs.git gogs
# Change working directory
cd gogs
# Compile the main program, dependencies will be downloaded at this step
go build -o gogs

Test Installation

To make sure Gogs is working:

./gogs web

If you do not see any error messages, hit Ctrl-C to stop Gogs.

Build with Tags

A couple of things do not come with Gogs automatically, you need to compile Gogs with corresponding build tags.

Available build tags are:

  • pam: PAM authentication support
  • cert: Generate self-signed certificates support
  • minwinsvc: Builtin windows service support (or you can use NSSM to create a service)
go build -tags "pam cert" -o gogs

If you get error: fatal error: security/pam_appl.h: No such file or directory, then install missing package via sudo apt-get install libpam0g-dev.

Next steps

You can’t perform that action at this time.
