GitLab - consider moving to a "omnibus" install?! (currently source) #1287

As per the subject, we are considering migrating our GitLab install from a source install to an omnibus install.

We envision that this will make maintenance easier; both for us and for end users.

The main potential issue is that our current source install uses MySQL as the backend DB. The Omnibus install supports only PostgreSQL DB backend. So we'd need to ensure that a MySQL based install can be migrated to a PostgreSQL one. As noted in a forum comment GitLab does support export/import, so that may be a potential workaround?

Extending on from that, perhaps it would be useful to see if that functionality can be leveraged from the commandline? If so, perhaps we should look to leverage that within TKLBAM rather than the current method (of saving files and DB)?

Closing this now as we've moved to an Omnibus install of GitLab. Please note that the current release (v15.3) still has a "500 error" as noted in #1315
