Do *NOT* use this.

If you like the prospect of a one click installer because you don't want to fuss to much about setting up and configuring gitlab, then you are going to 100% regret using this instance.

Here's the facts. Bitnami changes many things from the default gitlab installation. They apply these changes to new versions, even against old versions. This BREAKS smaller features of the gitlab system.

bitnami@gitlab:/opt/bitnami$ sudo gitlab-ci-multi-runner stop
FATAL: Failed to stop gitlab-runner: "initctl" failed: exit status 1, initctl: Unknown job: gitlab-runner

Bitnamis documentation is horribly out of date, and the inconsistencies between the version that is installed and the version you are actually using will make a newbies life a nightmare.

Finally, if you don't believe me in this, let me quote gitlab themselves.

"One-click install providers

One-click installers are frequently out of date and might not contain our Omnibus packages. An example of this are the Bitnami packages in the past couldn't be updated and are now much harder to update than the Omnibus packages. We advise to not use one-click installers but instead start an vanilla Ubuntu 14.04 instance and use the recommended Omnibus package installation. This is almost as quick as a one-click install and you're sure of the latest version and easy upgrades."

So, in short: Do not use this.

Could not be used.

Not what I was looking for

Gitlab is deployed in a very specific, non-standard way here and you'll have to go with the bitnami documentation (which is ok) to update it. In addition, there were a few glitches in the default installation I was unable to sort out. So I switched to a FreeBSD instance, installed Gitlab manually and now it works like a charm.

Good, convenient. Maybe the easiest way to set up a git server. But the sendmail function was disabled on AWS by default, which troubled me in the beginning process.

Works like a charm, out of the box. Nothing more to say, but i have to write more words here.

Easy to install and configure

Installation takes 5 minutes, and configuration is very easy since they include links to FAQs and basic stuff you should know.

Configuring the email can get tricky, so here is the basic stuff:

Be careful with the host and port, since it sets the ones where the machine installs by default, but if you then assign a static IP you must change them manually.
