GitLab - Self Hosted Git Management & DevOps Toolchain

GitLab is a single application for the entire software development lifecycle. From project planning and source code management to CI/CD, monitoring, and security. GitLab provides Git based version control, packaged with a complete DevOps toolchain. Somewhat like GitHub, but much, much more.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • GitLab configurations:

    • GitLab, RubyGems, PostgreSQL, Nginx and all other required components installed from upstream Omnibus package.

      Security note: Updates to GitLab may require supervision so they ARE NOT configured to install automatically. See below for updating GitLab. And/or see GitLab documentation.

    • Set GitLab admin user ('root') password and email on firstboot (convenience, security).

    • Set GitLab domain to serve on first boot (convenience).

    • Enbale GitLab Omnibus built-in Let's Encrypt certificates via Confconsole plugin (under "Lets Encrypt").

  • Includes postfix MTA (bound to localhost) for sending of email (e.g. password recovery). Also includes webmin postfix module for convenience.

Supervised Manual GitLab Update

It is recommended to always first check the GitLab documentation prior to update. It is also recommended that you ensure you have a full backup (TKLBAM is a good option, but there are other methods). Once you are statisfied, update to the latest stable release via apt:

apt update
apt install gitlab-ce

You can view available versions via the GitLab 'release' blog tag. We also highly recommend subscribing to receive email notifications.

Credentials (passwords set at first boot)

  • Webmin, SSH: username root
  • GitLab: username root
You can’t perform that action at this time.
