Migration of Gitlab Instance to Infomaniak Cloud

MB Mohd Bilal Public Seen by 6

Hi all,

We'll be migrating our gitlab instance at from to Infomaniak Public Cloud.

So far we created a project in which we started an instance with specs similar to our existing machine. We then allowed ICMP and SSH traffic. So far, we're able to access the machine via its (dynamically allocated) public IP.

What to do next?

  • Figure out a way to have a static IP (Floating IP) associated with the machine and communicate to the machine over it.

  • Migrate all the data to the new server.

@Mohd Bilal before we start copying data, we will need to add enough disk space.

Note: cleanup .cache/yarn and node_modules/.cache after migration

May be even made this a symlink to /var/cache/gitlab in the package.

Thanks a lot @Mohd Bilal for the migration. Stil TODO: 1. Update the sponsorship information on the homepage 2. Fix yarn install failure. 3. Setup backup of db, /var/lib/gitlab

Sponsorship information and yarn install failure is fixed. We still have to setup backup and reverse DNS.
