Rebuild authorized_keys file

In some case it is necessary to rebuild the authorized_keys file.

For GitSwarm packages:

sudo gitswarm-rake gitswarm:shell:setup

For source installations:

cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitswarm:shell:setup RAILS_ENV=production
This will rebuild an authorized_keys file.
You will lose any data stored in authorized_keys file.
Do you want to continue (yes/no)? yes

Clear redis cache

If for some reason the dashboard shows wrong information you might want to clear Redis' cache.

For GitSwarm packages:

sudo gitswarm-rake cache:clear

For source installations:

cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake cache:clear RAILS_ENV=production

Precompile the assets

Sometimes during version upgrades you might end up with some wrong CSS or missing some icons. In that case, try to precompile the assets again.

Note that this only applies to source installations and does NOT apply to package installations.

For source installations:

cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake assets:precompile RAILS_ENV=production

For package installations, the unoptimized assets (JavaScript, CSS) are frozen at the release of upstream GitSwarm. The package installation includes optimized versions of those assets. Unless you are modifying the JavaScript / CSS code on your production machine after installing the package, there should be no reason to redo rake assets:precompile on the production machine. If you suspect that assets have been corrupted, you should reinstall the package installation.

Tracking Deployments

GitSwarm provides a Rake task that lets you track deployments in GitSwarm Performance Monitoring. This Rake task simply stores the current GitSwarm version in the GitSwarm Performance Monitoring database.

For GitSwarm packages:

sudo gitswarm-rake gitswarm:track_deployment

For source installations:

cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake gitswarm:track_deployment RAILS_ENV=production
