GitBucket is a self-hosted Git platform that offers a similar interface and features to popular Git hosting platforms like GitHub. It provides a lightweight and easy-to-use solution for managing Git repositories, issue tracking, Wiki, and many other collaborative features. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of installing GitBucket on Ubuntu 22.04.
Step 1: Update System Packages
Before installing GitBucket, it is recommended to update your system packages to their latest versions. You can do this by running the following commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y
Step 2: Install Java Development Kit (JDK)
GitBucket requires Java to run. You can install the Java Development Kit (JDK) from the default Ubuntu repositories by executing the following command:
sudo apt install openjdk-11-jdk -y
Step 3: Download and Install GitBucket
To download the latest GitBucket package, you can use the following command:
Change the owner of the GitBucket directory to the newly created user:
sudo chown -R gitbucket: /opt/gitbucket
Step 6: Start and Enable GitBucket
Now, you can start the GitBucket service using the following command:
sudo systemctl start gitbucket
If you want GitBucket to start automatically at system boot, run the following command:
sudo systemctl enable gitbucket
Step 7: Accessing GitBucket Web Interface
Once GitBucket is up and running, you can access its web interface by navigating to http://your_domain_or_IP:8080 in your web browser. Note that you may need to allow incoming traffic on port 8080 if you have an active firewall.
When you access the web interface for the first time, you will be prompted to create an administrator account. Fill in the required information and click "Register" to proceed.
That's it! You have successfully installed GitBucket on your Ubuntu 22.04 server. You can now start using GitBucket to host your Git repositories and collaborate with your team.
