I recently discovered Gitlab CE and Mattermost and wanted to give it a try within my organisation. All my servers run on Windows Azure right now and so I went ahead and started a new virtual machine with a ready-made Gitlab CE image.
The new machine runs absolutely fine and I was able to add users, create groups and projects. Worked like a charm. For Gitlab I was using:
(Edit: this was actually a long random url created by Azure and I had to change it to this value for everything to work)
Next step for me was to setup Mattermost. I read the documentation and went ahead to edit
I only set:
These are the only two active lines in my gitlab.rb
Now when I run
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure, after a huge block of text, I see the following success message:
Running handlers: Running handlers complete Chef Client finished, 5/292 resources updated in 08 seconds gitlab Reconfigured!
I get the following status for Gitlab on the server:
devlab:~$ sudo gitlab-ctl status run: gitlab-workhorse: (pid 33034) 1424s; run: log: (pid 1253) 18293s run: logrotate: (pid 33043) 1423s; run: log: (pid 1255) 18293s run: mattermost: (pid 33049) 1423s; run: log: (pid 29284) 2434s down: nginx: 0s, normally up, want up; run: log: (pid 1278) 18293s run: postgresql: (pid 33163) 1389s; run: log: (pid 1282) 18293s run: redis: (pid 33137) 1392s; run: log: (pid 1251) 18293s run: sidekiq: (pid 33146) 1390s; run: log: (pid 1284) 18293s run: unicorn: (pid 33172) 1389s; run: log: (pid 1261) 18293s
I can see that nginx is down, and I am completely clueless how to get it up.
What am I doing wrong?
