Installing Gogs on Ubuntu 20.04

Brief Introduction to Gogs

Gogs is a painless self-hosted Git service that allows you to create and manage your own Git repositories. It is written in Go language and has a lightweight, easy-to-use interface. Whether you want to host your personal projects or set up a private Git server for your organization, Gogs provides a simple and efficient solution.

Step 1: Update the System

Before installing any new software, it is always recommended to update the system packages to their latest versions. Open a terminal and run the following commands:

sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade

Step 2: Install Required Dependencies

Gogs has some dependencies that need to be installed before setting it up. Run the following command to install Git, MySQL, and other required packages:

sudo apt install git mysql-server git-lfs openssh-server

Step 3: Create a System User for Gogs

It is recommended to create a separate system user for running Gogs. To do this, run the following command:

sudo adduser --system --shell /bin/bash --group --disabled-password --home /home/git git

Step 4: Download and Install Gogs

Step 5: Configure Gogs

Now, let's configure Gogs. Change to the Gogs directory:

cd /home/git/gogs

Run the following command to generate an initial configuration file:

sudo ./gogs web

Follow the prompts and provide the necessary information such as the database settings, domain, and port number.

To start Gogs as a service, run the following command:

sudo ./gogs web

Step 6: Access Gogs

After starting Gogs, you can access it using a web browser by navigating to the address http://localhost:3000 or http://your_domain_or_ip_address:3000. You should see the Gogs login page.
