GitLab 5+ on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

GitLab is a neat GitHub clone that can be installed on your own servers. I wanted to setup mine running in a virtualized Ubuntu 12.04LTS environment.

These instructions are for Ubuntu 12.04.2 AMD64 and GitLab 5-3-stable

Basic Instructions are here:

Deviations from Official Instructions

Ruby

Rather than downloading and compiling ruby 1.9.3, I installed it from the repo:

sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.3

However, I still installed the Bundler Gem.

MySQL

I went with MySQL over PostgreSQL simply because it integrates into my existing tools better.

sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysqlclient-dev

I use MySQL Workbench to configure my server instances. Command line instructions can be found in the GitLab Docs.

Notice in the “Install Gems” step, you have to use the First option for MySQL:

sudo -u git -H bundle install --deployment --without development test postgres
