  • set up in and certbot
  • Set up haproxy redirection; see haproxy.cfg for details. Note that you will be redirecting https to glam:8095 http.
  • Install up to the point where you configure
  • configure; see MDM comments
sudo emacs /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
  • build
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure # whoa, this builds/bakes everything
  • fix root pw RIGHT AWAY
sudo gitlab-rake "gitlab:password:reset[root]"
  • browse to admin console and get configuring; for now, turn off sign-up (if anyone wants in later, we can turn it on as it has admin approval turned on)


  • again, see /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
