I setup a private GitLab instance the other day and figured I could save people a lot of time by releasing a VMDK disk image. I plan on updating this with each new GitLab stable release.
Download the disk image here: gitlab-5.0-ubuntu-12.04lts.tar
Here are the details:
- VMDK virtual disk format (supported by vmware, QEMU, VirtualBox, and Suse Studio)
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64
- Default system user/pass gitlab-user/gitlab (please change via passwd)
- NIC is setup to DHCP
- 50GB Dynamic disk size
- Current GitLab stable release 5.0
- Default GitLab user email@example.com/5iveL!fe
Edit /home/git/gitlab/config/gitlab.yml and replace all instances of “localhost” with your own domain/ip.
If the nic doesn’t come back up when you setup your vm in VirtualBox here’s a way to fix it.
sudo vim /etc/network/interfaces
change eth0 to eth1 in the two lines where the nic is referenced.
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
Or reset the mac address.
