Description

This is a guide on installing GitLab 8.8 from source with continuous integration on FreeBSD 10.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure the system is up to date:
    pkg update && pkg upgrade
    
  • Install a few dependencies:
    pkg install sudo bash icu cmake pkgconf git node ruby ruby22-gems logrotate postfix krb5 go wget rubygem-bundler portmaster postgresql94-server redis gmake mercurial
    
  • Add the GitLab user
    pw add user -n git -m -s /usr/local/bin/bash -c "GitLab" 
    
  • Add git to the redis group:
    pw usermod git -G redis
    

Configure Postfix

  • Enable postfix as the mail delivery agent, and disable sendmail:
    echo 'postfix_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'sendmail_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'sendmail_submit_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'sendmail_msp_queue_enable="NO"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    

Configure PostgreSQL

  • Initialize, start, and enable postgresql at boot:
    echo 'postgresql_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service postgresql initdb
    service postgresql start
    
  • Log in to postgresql user account
    su - pgsql
    
  • Connect to postgresql database
    psql -d template1
    
    • Create a user for GitLab:
      CREATE USER git WITH PASSWORD 'SuperSecretPassword' CREATEDB;
      
    • Create the GitLab production database & grant all privileges on database
      CREATE DATABASE gitlabhq_production OWNER git encoding='UTF8';
      
    • Quit the database session
      \q
      exit
      

Configure Redis

  • Back up the original Redis config file:
    cp /usr/local/etc/redis.conf /usr/local/etc/redis.conf.orig
    
  • Disable Redis listening on TCP by setting 'port' to 0
    sed -i '' -e 's/^port .*/port 0/' /usr/local/etc/redis.conf
    
  • Enable Redis socket
    echo 'unixsocket /usr/local/var/run/redis/redis.sock' >> /usr/local/etc/redis.conf
    
  • Grant permission to the socket to all members of the redis group
    echo 'unixsocketperm 770' >> /usr/local/etc/redis.conf
    
  • Create the directory which contains the socket
    mkdir -p /usr/local/var/run/redis
    chown redis:redis /usr/local/var/run/redis
    chmod 755 /var/run/redis
    
  • Start and enable redis at boot:
    echo 'redis_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service redis start
    

Install GitLab 8

  • Switch to the git user:
    su - git
    
  • Clone GitLab repository
    git clone https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce.git -b 8-8-stable gitlab
    cd gitlab
    
  • Copy the example GitLab config
    cp config/gitlab.yml.example config/gitlab.yml
    
  • Update GitLab config file, follow the directions at top of file
    vi config/gitlab.yml
    
  • Copy the example secrets file
    cp config/secrets.yml.example config/secrets.yml
    chmod 0600 config/secrets.yml
    
  • Make sure GitLab can write to the log/ and tmp/ directories
    chown -R git log/
    chown -R git tmp/
    chmod -R u+rwX,go-w log/
    chmod -R u+rwX tmp/
    
  • Make sure GitLab can write to the tmp/pids/ and tmp/sockets/ directories
    chmod -R u+rwX tmp/pids/
    chmod -R u+rwX tmp/sockets/
    
  • Make sure GitLab can write to the public/uploads/ directory
    chmod -R u+rwX  public/uploads
    
  • Change the permissions of the directory where CI build traces are stored
    chmod -R u+rwX builds/
    
  • Copy the example Unicorn config
    cp config/unicorn.rb.example config/unicorn.rb
    
  • Copy the example Rack attack config
    cp config/initializers/rack_attack.rb.example config/initializers/rack_attack.rb
    
  • Configure Git global settings for git user, used when editing via web editor
    git config --global core.autocrlf input
    
  • Configure Redis connection settings
    cp config/resque.yml.example config/resque.yml
    
  • Change the Redis socket path if you are not using the default Debian / Ubuntu configuration
    vi config/resque.yml
    
    • And modify the following parameter:
      production: unix:/usr/local/var/run/redis/redis.sock
      
  • Configure GitLab DB Settings:
    cp config/database.yml.postgresql config/database.yml
    
  • Change the database credentials if necessary:
    vi config/database.yml
    
  • Make config/database.yml readable to git only
    chmod o-rwx config/database.yml
    
  • Install the gems for PostgreSQL:
    bundle install --deployment --without development test mysql aws kerberos
    

Install GitLab Shell

  • Run the installation task for gitlab-shell:
    bundle exec rake gitlab:shell:install RAILS_ENV=production
    
  1. By default, the gitlab-shell config is generated from your main GitLab config, double check the settings are correct:
    vi /home/git/gitlab-shell/config.yml
    

Install GitLab Workhorse

  • Install the gitlab workhorse:
    cd /home/git
    git clone https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-workhorse.git
    cd gitlab-workhorse
    git checkout 0.6.5
    make
    

Initialize Database

  • Initialize the database:
    cd /home/git/gitlab
    bundle exec rake gitlab:setup RAILS_ENV=production
    
  • Exit out of the git user, back into root:
    exit
    

Install Init Script

  • Download the init script:
    wget -O /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gitlab https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-recipes/raw/master/init/init/freebsd/gitlab-unicorn
    
  • Fix the shell environment for the init script:
    sed -i '' -e 's/\#\!\ \/bin\/sh/\#\!\ \/usr\/local\/bin\/bash' /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gitlab
    
  • Make the init script executable:
    chmod +x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gitlab
    

Check Configuration and Compile Assets

  • Check the configuration:
    cd /home/git/gitlab
    bundle exec rake gitlab:env:info RAILS_ENV=production
    
  • Compile all of the assets for GitLab:
    bundle exec rake assets:precompile RAILS_ENV=production
    
  • Start and enable gitlab at boot:
    echo 'gitlab_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service gitlab start
    

Install Nginx

  • Install nginx:
    pkg install nginx
    
  • Start and enable nginx at boot:
    echo 'nginx_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service nginx start
    
  • Create a configuration directory to make managing individual server blocks easier
    mkdir /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d
    
  • Edit the main nginx config file:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf
    
    • And strip down the config file and add the include statement at the end to make it easier to handle various server blocks:
      worker_processes  1;
      error_log  /var/log/nginx-error.log;
      
      events {
          worker_connections  1024;
      }
      
      http {
          include       mime.types;
          default_type  application/octet-stream;
          sendfile        on;
          keepalive_timeout  65;
      
          # Load config files from the /etc/nginx/conf.d directory
          include /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
      }
      
  • Create the gitlab nginx config:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d/gitlab.example.com.conf
    
    • And add the following:
      upstream gitlab-workhorse {
        server unix:/home/git/gitlab/tmp/sockets/gitlab-workhorse.socket fail_timeout=0;
      }
      
      server {
        listen 80;
        server_name gitlab.example.com;
        server_tokens off;
        root /home/git/gitlab/public;
        access_log  /var/log/gitlab.example.com-access.log;
        error_log   /var/log/gitlab.example.com-error.log;
      
        location / {
          client_max_body_size 0;
          gzip off;
      
          proxy_read_timeout      300;
          proxy_connect_timeout   300;
          proxy_redirect          off;
      
          proxy_http_version 1.1;
      
          proxy_set_header    Host                $http_host;
          proxy_set_header    X-Real-IP           $remote_addr;
          proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-For     $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
          proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-Proto   $scheme;
      
          proxy_pass http://gitlab-workhorse;
        }
      }
      

Install GitLab Runner

  • Download the binary for 64-bit systems:
    wget -O /usr/local/bin/gitlab-ci-multi-runner https://gitlab-ci-multi-runner-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/latest/binaries/gitlab-ci-multi-runner-freebsd-amd64
    
    • NOTE: If the host architecture is 32-bit download the 386 version of the gitlab runner:
      wget -O /usr/local/bin/gitlab-ci-multi-runner https://gitlab-ci-multi-runner-downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/latest/binaries/gitlab-ci-multi-runner-freebsd-386
      
  • Give it permissions to execute:
    chmod +x /usr/local/bin/gitlab-ci-multi-runner
    
  • Then switch to the git user
  • Finally register the gitlab runner instance:
    gitlab-ci-multi-runner register --non-interactive --url "http://gitlab.example.com/ci" --registration-token "5777041dc9651d08ff77" --description "gitlab-ce-ruby-2.1" --executor "shell" builds_dir = "" shell = "bash"
