I would like to update my Gitlab from version 8.12.7 ( installed from sources / MySQL version) to 9.X ( package version with PostgreSQL )
To do it, I installed a Gitlab-ce on the same version with PostgreSQL , did my backup as recommenced on the documentation, run the converter as recommended here
Then , I transfer the converted backup tar through SCP to the new server with packaged installation , but , when I run the
gitlab-rake gitlab:backup:restore I've got the following errors : tar: Unexpected EOF in archive tar: rmtlseek not stopped at a record boundary tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Like if my tar was corrupt , but I can successfully unpack it on both servers after the convertion step. I saw rsync could cause a problem but md5sum are the same on both side...
Any help would be gladely appreciated ! Thanks for reading , have a good sysadmin day
