Thanks for using Bitnami Gitlab CE!
With external postgresql to Gitlab should we need to install postgresql on Gitlab server ?
The VirtualMachine image for Bitnami Gitlab CE comes with a PostgreSQL server by default, which is the one used by the application. Nevertheless, you can opt to use an external PostgreSQL server if you wish. In order to do that, you can refer to their official documentation:
so when we are upgrading which version of psql or pg_dump will be communicating with external postgresql and how to know which version of postgresql version is running on the server side
The latest Bitnami Gitlab CR release (14.3.3-ce.0-0) uses PostgreSQL 12, so yours most likely will be using the same. In order to verify it, you can simply connect to the database and the version will be prompted:
sudo gitlab-psql -d gitlabhq_production
Type "help" for help.
