Install

GitKraken Enterprise runs on a Linux virtual machine (CentOS, Ubuntu, or RHEL7) inside Docker containers, so before we can boldy go where no Kraken has gone before, we'll have to install Docker.

Jump to CentOS
Jump to Ubuntu
Jump to RedHat Enterprise Linux 7

    `uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    
  8. Apply executable permissions:

    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    
  9. Install GitKraken Enterprise - jump to Installation section.

Without internet access

  1. Download Docker CE package from a machine with internet access.

    • Docker CE for Ubuntu choose your Ubuntu version, browse to pool/stable, and choose your architecture.

    You can check your version using:

    lsb_release -a
    
  2. Download Docker Compose package from a machine with internet access.

  3. Get the 2 files over to the host server where Docker will be installed.

  4. Install Docker (change the path to where you copied the files, and change the package names appropriately):

    sudo dpkg -i /path/to/package.deb`
    (e.g. `sudo dpkg -i docker-ce_17.06.0-ce-0-ubuntu_amd64.deb`)
    
  5. Move Docker Compose file and rename it:

    sudo mv docker-compose-Linux-x86_64 /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    
  6. Apply executable permissions:

    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    

Install Docker CE on RHEL7

With internet access

  1. Install required packages:

    sudo yum install -y yum-utils device-mapper-persistent-data lvm2
    
  2. Use the following command to set up the stable repository:

    sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
    
  3. Update the yum package index:

    sudo yum makecache fast
    
  4. Install the latest version of Docker:

    sudo yum install --setopt=obsoletes=0 docker-ce-17.03.2.ce-1.el7.centos.x86_64 docker-ce-selinux-17.03.2.ce-1.el7.centos.noarch
    
    • Note: If you would like to install the latest version of Docker CE, you can run the following command to get the latest version:
      yum list docker-ce --showduplicates | sort -r
      
      Insert the desired Docker CE version into the install command by replacing that portion of the string for the Docker CE version and the selinux version.
  5. Edit /etc/docker/daemon.json. If it does not yet exist, create it:

    {
    "storage-driver": "devicemapper"
    }
    
  6. Start Docker:

    sudo systemctl start docker
    
  7. Switch to root user:

    sudo su
    
  8. Download Docker Compose:

    curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.14.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    
  9. Apply executable permissions:

    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    
  10. Install GitKraken Enterprise - jump to Installation section.

Install GitKraken Enterprise

  1. Extract GitKrakenEnterpriseServer.zip in a folder of your choosing (all commands in the following instructions will be performed in that folder).

  2. Load the images into Docker:

    sudo sh loadImages.sh
    
  3. Configure what port GitKraken Enterprise should run on the host server. By default GitKraken Enterprise server will run on port 3000.

    You can change the port by opening up the docker-compose.yml file and making a few modifications.
    First, find the ports section under gk-enterprise-controller:

     ports:
       "3000:3000"
    

    Modify the first 3000 to the desired port For example, to use port 80 change it to:

     ports:
       "80:3000"
    

    Then update the GITKRAKEN_ENTERPRISE_URL environment variable to use the desired port. Again, for port 80 it would look like:

     environment:
         GITKRAKEN_ENTERPRISE_URL: http://localhost:80
    

    Finally, find the GITKRAKEN_ENTERPRISE_URL environment variable in the gk-services section and modify the port. For port 80, this would look like:

     environment:
         GITKRAKEN_ENTERPRISE_URL: http://localhost:80
    
  4. Configure where the GitKraken client releases are stored on your host server. By default the releases folder is set to ./gk-data/release. You can change the location by opening up the docker-compose.yml file and finding the section under gk-enterprise-controller:

    volumes:
    ./gk-data/release:/controller/release # The volume where GitKraken Enterprise clients go.
    

    and modifying ./gk-data/release to point to another directory on your host server.

  5. Create the folder specified in the above step on your host server.

  6. Extract release.zip in the folder you created on your host server (releases will always be extracted in this folder).

  7. In the same folder containing the docker-compose.yml file, run the following command:

    sudo docker-compose up
    
    • Note: If installing in CentOS or RHEL7, you may need to specify the full path to the docker-compose installation. The following commands should allow you to run the docker-compose command successfully:
      sudo systemctl start docker.service
      sudo /usr/local/bin/docker-compose up
      
  8. Navigate to http://localhost:3000 and complete the setup (the port in the URL should match the port from step 3, if it was changed).
