    Greetings, this must be a very basic question for you, but I prefer to ask.

    How can I add/install GitLab to ISPconfig, the configuration is with (Perfect Server) Debian 10 with Apache.



    Thank you very much for your help.

    It's always better to ask ;)
    However, there is no simple answer to the simple question.
    GitLab is a very big package and is intended to be the only service running on that server. So, there will be pitfalls where it could break already running service on your server. If you are familiar with docker, that would be a good way to go. Install it and then create a website with reverse proxy in ispconfig.
    If you do not need all the features of gitlab, you could use a more lightweight system like gitea.io.

    In any case, this is not a small website but a big package which provides external services and interferes with your system. Make a proper backup before installation!

    Thanks, that's what I needed to hear, a recommendation of this kind.

    So the best thing is to have the service separately, I wanted to keep it in the same domain, but yalso maybe it's better to have it done differently.

    I was trying to adapt this guide, https://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-gitlab-on-debian-11/ but in the end I will make it separate from ISPconfig.

    Thank you very much
