Keywords: GitLab - AWS - Technical issue - OtherDescription: Hello,
Steps to reproduce:
Expected: Bitnami dashboard to show 1 server running
I then terminated the running instance from the AWS console.
Why didn't the running instance show up in my Bitnami dashboard?
When you launch an application through the AWS Console it won't show in the Bitnami Cloud Hosting Console, but directly in AWS. Only the applications you launch directly from https://app.bitnamihosting.com/servers will be listed, and can be managed through the Bitnami Cloud Hosting console.
Got it, thanks @michiel!
Is it possible to launch the GitLab stack through the Bitnami Cloud HostingConsole? (No business requirement to do so, I am new to Bitnami and wantto understand what I can and can't do with it.)
Yes, of course @atsaloli.
This guide explains the steps you need to follow to connect Bitnami Cloud Hosting with your AWS account, can you take a look at it?
Please remember that if you already launched a Bitnami Gitlab solution using the AWS console, you will need to use that portal to stop/delete it if you don't want to use it anymore.
Thanks @jota! I’ve connected my Bitnami Cloud Hosting acct to my AWS acct.
I have a couple of questions.
How does Bitnami actually make money?
And how do I handle updating GitLab after deploying it using a Bitnamistack?
Thanks in advance!
Bitnami Cloud Hosting allows you manage AWS instances easily. We provide those images for free but AWS will charge you for the usage of the resources in the cloud. We can provide these images free of charge for the users because we have partnership agreements with the different cloud providers.
As the Bitnami Gitlab image uses the official Gitlab packages, you will need to follow the official guides to update the solution
