GitLab CE empowers you to host your code on your own server, providing complete control over your projects. With its user-friendly interface, you and your team can efficiently manage repositories in private mode. This article guides you through the process of self-hosting GitLab server for seamless repository management.

I. Setting Up GitLab with Prerequisite Dependencies

You may encounter unexpected errors due to missing packages or dependencies required by GitLab for proper functioning. Therefore, it is important to establish secure connections with external servers to avoid errors during the download or installation process.

$ sudo apt install ca-certificates curl openssh-server postfix tzdata perl

With the necessary dependencies installed, you can proceed to install GitLab. This involves using installation script to set up the GitLab repositories on your system.

$ cd /tmp
tmp$ curl -LO https://packages.gitlab.com/install/repositories/gitlab/gitlab-ce/script.deb.sh

Before executing the script, you may want to review its contents to ensure you're comfortable with the actions it will perform.

tmp$ cat script.deb.sh

Next, execute the `script.deb.sh` script located in the `/tmp` directory using the bash command.

tmp$ sudo bash script.deb.sh

Once the script execution is complete, proceed to install the GitLab application using the apt package manager.

tmp$ sudo apt install gitlab-ce
