In file /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb I change (need)

user['username'] = "gitlab"
user['group'] = "gitlab"

on

user['username'] = "git"
user['group'] = "git"

and sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure

After this nginx output: 502 GitLab is not responding

$ gitlab-ctl tail

  • Did you at any point change the ownership of the relevant files from gitlab to git?

  • Many people use old repo(when user was name git) with ssh link begining git@...git. When I update gitlab, user renamed to gitlab ssh link begining gitlab@.....git. Too much repo need rename.

Your error message shows you that after the change, gitlab-ctl doesn't have the proper permissions to access the repositories.

There are a few alternative things you can do to fix this. Choose one, choose wisely...

  1. You can change only the username but keep the old group. If the group has the requisite permissions, you won't need to change anything else.

  2. You can change ownership on all the files previously owned by github so that they are now owned by git instead. You can do this quite easily by running

find /var/log/gitlab -user github -exec chown git:git {} \;
  1. Instead of changing all the ownerships, you can keep the same old UID/GID but just change the name to git instead of github. You can do this by editing /etc/passwd.

  2. You can keep both usernames with the same UID and path to home dir, etc. That way it won't matter which username the users login with. This will make for a fairly confusing system, though, so I wouldn't recommend it if any of the other methods works.

I don't no why, but when I change permissions to /var/log/gitlab/unicorn and gitlab worked: sudo chown -R git:git /var/log/gitlab/unicorn
