GitLab One Click Application Not Working Anymore

Dear DigitalOcean,

Today I’m created a GitLab One-Click application. It’s not working any more.

When I check logs it says gitlab-ctl: command not found 😠

Please take a look at this issue. I have wasted 3 hours of my time on this with your wrong Pre Installed application and documentation.

Take some responsibility about your One Click Applications.

Thank you.

If you’d like to install GitLab manually, it’s actually quite easy.

To get started, deploy a Ubuntu 16.04 64bit Droplet and run:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade

Followed by:

sudo apt-get install curl openssh-server ca-certificates postfix

Next we’ll add the repositories needed to install GitLab and install it.

curl -sS | sudo bash
sudo apt-get -y install gitlab-ce

Finally, we’ll run the same command:

sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure

That last command will take a minute or two to complete. Once you’re returned to the prompt, you’ll be able to access GitLab in your web browser. It’ll start by asking you to change your password on the first screen, and then you can login and configure it as needed.
