MySQL root password for GitLab Droplet (GitLab CI)

  • Posted December 8, 2013

Hey, I’ve just installed a Droplet with the GitLab image on it. Now I want to add GitLab CI. As I can see there is already a folder called /home/gitlab_ci but I’m not sure if it already installed because I could not find any information about it, And if not I have to access my installed database for adding gitlab ci user but I’m also not able to find my root password for MySQL. So can someone help me? :)

Btw, to answer the question in the title. The root password for gitlab mysql droplet is the same as the one for the gitlab user. <br> <br>Both are: gitlab_digital_ocean

GitLab CI must be setup on a separate server than GitLab CE. Then GitLab CI uses Runners to a 3rd Server

@Pablo in both places only gitlab is listed so I think gitlab ci is NOT installed even if there is the matching home folder for it <br> <br>@joshfng there is just access data for user github and not the root account

Have you tried: <br><pre>sudo service --status-all</pre> <br>to see if it’s currently running? <br> <br>If not, is it listed in <code>/etc/init.d/</code>?

If you check check the gitlab.yml file in /home/gitlab. I believe the root password will be listed in there.

yeah but I can’t see an answer to any of my questions
