How to Install GitLabs on Ubuntu 14.04?

Hello! Has anyone installed GitLabs on their own Ubuntu Droplet with an existing content? I plan to do so, and I’m not sure how to go about it, if I need to get a new Droplet because installed GitLabs might overwrite/clear my Droplet, and if I have to set up nginx and server blocks.

I know I can just use gitlab but I want to maximize my Droplet as much as possible.

Any leads would be appreciated. Thank you.

I would make a new droplet because GitLab requires a lot of resources and the automated installer likes to take over your whole system.
