Auto Install GitLab on new Droplet Email is not working
I have setup 2 Droplets so far trying to get Gitlab working. I am using the Gitlab ready Ubuntu image for the auto-install when creating the droplet.
The first one was a %12,b server and gave 501 type errors, I did some research and came to the conclusion that I might need the 1gb of ram server. So I launched a new 1gb droplet with the same image and it had the same problem!
I then realized that a re-boot of the server fixed the problem so the 512mb server might of worked as well.
From this point it appeared on the surface everything was working good however when I created a new user account in Gitlab the only way to set a password is to let it email the user a password! Sounds fine except the email s would never send. It seems that the server may of not had Email setup or working by default!
As this pre-installed image was supposed to work out of the box according to all the tutorials I read, this email problem made no sense to me so I am assuming something is wrong with that prebuilt server image?
Anyone else use it to get Gitlab running and have similar issue?
The only thing I didn’t do was I did not setup a domain name on that server for Gitlab but it is supposed to work on an IP as well. I’m not sure if that would affect the emails not being sent?
Any ideas on a fix maybe?
