from ubuntu to centos (debian to rpm). No particular reason for this, just trying to make my migration even more complicated.
I really wanted to clean all of this up and get gitlab going correctly. At this point I was stuck on 7.14 because 8.x migrations required nginx and google go and I couldn't seem to get that working with apache. Again, ignorance...but this was just one more reason to do things correclty.
# install your new gitlab server with the same installation as your source server. In my case 7.14. Probably want to use omnibus. Make sure it's working to your specifications
# on source server...
#remove existing backups
rm -rf /home/git/gitlab/tmp/backups/*
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitlab:backup:create RAILS_ENV=production
scp tmp/backups/* root@destination:/var/opt/gitlab/backups
# the remainder of the tasks are performed on the destination server
sudo su -
sudo gitlab-ctl stop unicorn
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:satellites:create
sudo chmod -R ug+rwX,o-rwx /var/opt/gitlab/git-data/repositories
sudo chmod -R ug-s /var/opt/gitlab/git-data/repositories
find /var/opt/gitlab/git-data/repositories -type d -print0 | sudo xargs -0 chmod g+s
sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:check SANITIZE=true
