Step 3 – Plesk Integration

After GitLab is successfully configured, there is Plesk integration next.

Create /etc/nginx/conf.d/gitlab.conf file with the following content

For GitLab version 7:

upstream gitlab {
server unix:/var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/sockets/gitlab.socket fail_timeout=0;

For GitLab 8.0.x/8.1.x , that performs gitlab-git-http-server:

upstream gitlab {
server unix:/var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/sockets/gitlab.socket fail_timeout=0;

For GitLab 8.2.x, that present gitlab-workhorse:

upstream gitlab {
server unix:/var/opt/gitlab/gitlab-rails/sockets/gitlab.socket fail_timeout=0;

When there are a lot of data, it may occur 413 error, so to avoid it just be sure that the http section of /etc/sw-cp-server/config file have the following line:

client_max_body_size 2048m;

Reload nginx with:

/etc/init.d/nginx reload

or restart the service with:

service nginx restart

At this point create a new domain or subdomain (like gitlab.wdscode.guru) in Plesk, and in its configuration click on “Apache & nginx Settings” (“Web server settings” on Plesk 12.0) for the chosen domain.

Uncheck all the options in the “nginx settings” section and add the following text in the “Additional nginx directives” text area for GitLab 7:
