I have installed Debian 7 and Gitlab using this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-gitlab-as-your-very-own-private-github-clone

Now I want to use it with my Apache, can anyone tell me how to do?

That tutorial uses Nginx for the web server. There’s no need to install Apache, but you can do so if you want. First we need to create a new VirtualHost for GitLab. Let’s use the file “/etc/apache2/sites-available/gitlab” In it we’ll put: <br> <br><pre> <br><VirtualHost :80> <br> ServerName gitlab.example.com <br> ServerSignature Off <br> <br> ProxyPreserveHost On <br> <br> <Location /> <br> Order deny,allow <br> Allow from all <br> <br> ProxyPassReverse http://127.0.0.1:8080 <br> ProxyPassReverse http://gitlab.example.com/ <br> </Location> <br> <br> RewriteEngine on <br> RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f <br> RewriteRule . http://127.0.0.1:8080%{REQUEST_URI} [P,QSA] <br> <br> # needed for downloading attachments <br> DocumentRoot /home/git/gitlab/public <br> <br> #Set up apache error documents, if back end goes down (i.e. 503 error) then a maintenance/deploy page is thrown up. <br> ErrorDocument 404 /404.html <br> ErrorDocument 422 /422.html <br> ErrorDocument 500 /500.html <br> ErrorDocument 503 /deploy.html <br></VirtualHost> <br></pre> <br> <br>Then enable your site: <br> <br><pre> <br>a2ensite gitlab <br>a2enmod proxy_http <br>a2enmod proxy <br>service apache2 restart <br></pre> <br> <br>You should be all set now. If you had previously followed the steps to install nginx, you will probably want to uninstall it. You’ll at least need to stop it with <code> service nginx stop</code> <br> <br>Check out this GitHub repo to see all the details for running GitLab on Apache: <br> <br>https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlab-recipes/tree/master/web-server/apache <br>
