GitLab CE Droplet Image and running GitLab backups

Posted June 14, 2014 3.7k views
I installed the Digital Ocean provided gitlab ce image. I have it up and running but would like to setup backups. I came cross this: there doesn't seem to be a /home/git/gitlab directory in this image. Does anyone know what the substitution would be?
