Installing Gogs on CentOS 7

Gogs is a self-hosted Git service that provides a lightweight, easy-to-use interface for managing and hosting Git repositories. It is written in Go and offers features similar to popular Git hosting platforms like GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket.

Here's a step-by-step guide to installing Gogs on CentOS 7:

First, ensure that your CentOS 7 system is up to date by running the following commands:

sudo yum clean all sudo yum update 

Next, install the dependencies required by Gogs using the following command:

sudo yum install -y git go sqlite 

Create a dedicated system user for running the Gogs service:

sudo adduser gogs sudo su - gogs 

Download the Gogs source code from the official Gogs repository:

go get -u -tags "sqlite" github.com/gogs/gogs 

Compile Gogs with SQLite support:

cd ~/go/src/github.com/gogs/gogs TAGS="sqlite" make build 

Create a configuration file for Gogs:

cp ~/go/src/github.com/gogs/gogs/conf/app.ini.example ~/go/src/github.com/gogs/gogs/conf/app.ini 

Edit the configuration file to customize your Gogs installation:

nano ~/go/src/github.com/gogs/gogs/conf/app.ini 

Modify settings like hostname, port, database path, etc. as desired.

Create a directory for the Gogs SQLite database:

mkdir -p ~/gogs/data/sqlite 

Start the Gogs service:

./gogs web 

Gogs is now running and can be accessed by visiting http://your-server-ip:3000 in your web browser.

To automatically start Gogs on system boot, you can configure it as a service:

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/gogs.service 

Paste the following configuration into the file:

[Unit] Description=Gogs After=syslog.target After=network.target After=mariadb.service mysqld.service postgresql.service memcached.service redis.service  [Service] Type=simple User=gogs Group=gogs ExecStart=/path/to/gogs/gogs web Restart=always Environment=USER=gogs HOME=/path/to/gogs  [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target 

Save and exit the file, then run the following commands to enable and start the Gogs service:

sudo systemctl enable gogs sudo systemctl start gogs 

Now Gogs will automatically start on system boot.

  1. Update System Packages
  2. Install Required Dependencies
  3. Create a Gogs User
  4. Download and Compile Gogs
  5. Configure Gogs
  6. Prepare Database
  7. Start Gogs
  8. Configure Gogs as a Service (Optional)

Congratulations! You have successfully installed and configured Gogs on CentOS 7. You can now start using Gogs to manage your Git repositories.
