    GitLab 8.5 and the new CI 

    With GitLab 8.5 we are introducing some great new features, between them also a brand new CI service.

    To have a working CI follow this quick start.

    If you don’t know how to setup your runner or you need one: ask me. We have a VM with docker available to register new runners.

    GitLab: bakup and restore 

    WARNING: You can only restore a backup to exactly the same version of GitLab that you created it on.

      :: Create a backup of the GitLab system:

    • sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create

      the backup file will be created at /var/opt/gitlab/backups/
      or where specified in the gitlab config file.

      You can skip the backup for come components using:

      sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create SKIP=db,uploads
    • Please be informed that a backup does not store your configuration files. One reason for this is that your database contains encrypted information for two-factor authentication. Storing encrypted information along with its key in the same place defeats the purpose of using encryption in the first place!
      At the very minimum you should backup /etc/gitlab/gitlab-secrets.json (Omnibus) or /home/git/gitlab/.secret (source) to preserve your database encryption key.
      :: Restore a previously created backup:

    • We will assume that you have installed GitLab from an omnibus package and run
      sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure

      at least once.

      Note: that you need to run gitlab-ctl reconfigure after changing gitlab-secrets.json.

      First make sure your backup tar file is in /var/opt/gitlab/backups (or wherever gitlab_rails[‘backup_path’] points to).

      sudo cp 1393513186_gitlab_backup.tar /var/opt/gitlab/backups/
    • Next, restore the backup by running the restore command. You need to specify the timestamp of the backup you are restoring.
      # Stop processes that are connected to the database
      sudo gitlab-ctl stop unicorn
      sudo gitlab-ctl stop sidekiq
      # This command will overwrite the contents of your GitLab database!
      sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:restore BACKUP=1393513186
      # Start GitLab
      sudo gitlab-ctl start
      # Check GitLab
      sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:check SANITIZE=true
