Install GitLab on a dedicated virtual server

Dear Community,

I'm stuck at what I first thought to be a simple task: - I've created a dedicated virtual server to host the GitLab application: - I now want to install the GitLab package on this virtual server, so I can access it through

I just can't find any documentation to do this! I already managed to install the whole stuff once (everything OK), using a root SSH access via console, but obviously, the package didn't install in, so there's nothing at /home/myadmin/domains/ ... :-(

Moreover, any connection returns "You don't have permission to access / on this server.". I don't know if this error is related to the wrong installation...

Can anyone bring some light on this installation process? Should I build my own "installation script" as mentioned somewhere in the doc?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Have you created the git. sub server using the VirtualMin?

I'd refer to assuming you have the DNS record in VirtualMin :)

Hi m1ngaa and thanks for your quick answer!

I've already created the subserver and updated the DNS entries to point on Is there any DNS configuration I should also apply through Virtualmin?

By the way, from what I read on StackOverflow (thanks for the link), gitlab will always install where it wants, all I can do is configure the application to listen the required URL (external_url ""), so everything is done at the gitlab level. Am I right?

Thanks again for your help!
