Updating gitlab server. one-click install


I’m using a gitlab server by DO, their one-click install.

Now there have been a few updates and I wish to update to the newest, but unsure how to do that.

I found this page, but since its the one-click install, then I’m unsure which one to follow.

Ubuntu / Debian: Upgrading from manually downloaded Omnibus package

To upgrade you will need to add the package repository to your system first.

Call the following script for easy installation:

curl | sudo bash

Now you will be able to install / upgrade GitLab to the latest version using the package repository. When running the command below, GitLab will detect a conflict and remove gitlab in favor of gitlab-ce. This will leave your data intact.

To upgrade, run: sudo apt-get install gitlab-ce

You are now ready to use GitLab again!
