GitLab Follow | Open Source

The Bitnami Gitlab Stack provides a one-click install solution for GitLab. Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own GitLab server in the cloud.

The GitLab open source edition, available from Bitnami, is a developer tool that allows users to collaborate on code, create new projects, manage repositories, and perform code reviews. When using GitLab, users can keep their code on their own servers, either in the cloud or on-premise. For additional peace of mind, the free community edition even features enterprise-grade features such as a mature user permissions scheme and support for high availability. Bitnami GitLab is bundled with GitLab CI, a continuous integration server. Just point your projects at the CI server and automate all your tests.

Why use the Bitnami Gitlab Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run GitLab in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Gitlab Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of GitLab and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of GitLab as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying GitLab or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami Gitlab Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

    Power of Github in my hand

    by Gagan M M on

    I always loved the way Github helped me manage my projects efficiently. I always wanted to use all those features hosted on my own server. GitLab is just the perfect version control tool i would ever need. Apart from almost all the features available on Github, other features like LDAP, CI, etc are very useful and makes me more productive. It just works so great ! I really want to thank GitLab authors and Bitnami for facilitating this.

    My own, full featured, beautifully polished GitHub

    by Marko Bonaci on

    I deployed the VM and had everything working in minutes, with zero configuration (except the necessary stuff: host name and e-mail server).

    You can hook it up to your LDAP and avoid e-mail registrations all together.

    Congrats and big thanks to GitLab authors.

    I tried to install gitlab with your file on an updated fresh installed ubuntu server 14.4.3.

    In the end of the installation occurs errors like:

    Error running su gitlab_ci -s /bin/sh bla bla : Permission denied.

    Not often I give a review

    by Joshua Tollefson on

    I just wanted to stop in and say. "Thanks for making it so easy to start a git server." I personally have the technical expertise to put a git server together and have thought of doing it many times for my own personal use. But, with family and a job it's hard to find time to do the little things like that. Having a prebuilt VM available that I can slap into VirtualBox and run within 5 minutes makes time a non-issue. Thanks again!!

    Web UI's contents got messed up

    by Ashish Yadav on

    I have downloaded the VM image and tried online demo as well but on both occasion I was not getting proper WebUI, In my opinion css files were not loading properly. So for that reason I was seeing all the contents in the plain text without any formatting.

    Please give proper direction on this problem.
