No major changes to config other than storing git repos on an NFS mount.
Pretty basic question, how do I upgrade GitLab? I've got a new Hypervisor and would like to migrate my VM, and upgrade while doing so.
The bitnami documentation states: > If you have already installed Omnibus GitLab, the GitLab official repository is has been configured for you.
I'm fairly certain that the bitnami VM does not contain any GitLab Omnibus apt sources, at least there is nothing resembling that in /etc/apt/sources.list. If I follow the link in the documentation it leads to instructions for installing packages manually. I'm afraid that if I do this, I will end up with two versions of GitLab as Bitnami installs things in non-standard directories (/opt/bitnami).
I can set up a vanilla GitLab on a new VM with the Omnibus installer, but the GitLab backup/restore process only works between identical versions. This is obviously less than ideal.
The least preferred method would be to create a vanila GitLab using OmniBus packages, recreate all of my users/keys, and simply clone all of the existing repos. If I go this route, do I have to clone through the gui, or can I simply point my new GitLab to the existing repos on my NFS share?
