GitLab CE Droplet Image and running GitLab backups

  • Posted June 14, 2014

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: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/doc/raketasks/backup_restore.md

there doesn’t seem to be a /home/git/gitlab directory in this image. Does anyone know what the substitution would be?

I was able generate backups by running “gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:create” and the backups are generated at “/var/opt/gitlab/backups”
