Summary

I have self-hosted gitlab, installed with apt. I don't have git_data_dir in default location (see config). I can't push docker image into docker registry, directory <shared_path>/registry does not exists. No migrations, no backup/restore procedure, last version.

Problem to solve

GitLab reject Docker image push from remote location with error 500. I'm not able to push image into my private docker registry. Have anyone idea why and how to solve it?

Pushing image from remote device

Biggest problem (if I understand it right) is:

Who is the owner of your registry directory?

Try changing the owner to "registry". I had a similar problem and changed the owner of "/var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/shared/registry/docker/registry/" from "git" to "registry"

  • Problem is, there is no registry directory. Not even after gitlab-ctl reconfigure. I created it for test, changed owner and group and push still does not work. – Ajax Jan 29 '20 at 12:07
  • Just one note, I had to create this directory, because without it, gitlab-backup create crashed with error something like registry dir is missing – Ajax Jan 29 '20 at 12:09
