My friend who ask for email problem send me another email. He told me that he already move his gitlab server to another because he see better offer (cheaper vps with better feature). The transfer job taken by his co worker that taking vacation now. The problem is simple .
When he try to add ssh key to his gitlab account he got this error : 500
Yes. The title is taken from email subject
After I help my friend set spf record for his gitlab I got email from a friend who has a computer course. His student around 400 and he want to give ‘collaboration’ feel to their programming curriculum. He ask me to help him install gitlab with $20 budget.
I told him to use free github.com account or free gitlab.com account but he refuse. He also want his staff has control for their server. I give him a few reference from internet but he got confuse and already dizzy at the first time he saw console
Due to distance problem I decide to use vps from vultr than using his server. (Actuallly the server is connected to internet using adsl and only fast access via lan connnection that make me worry about the performance.).
Based on gitlab ce (community edition) requirement I need vps that match :
CPU : 2 cores
Memory : 2GB ( for up to 500 user)
Storage : > 20 GB and SSD preferred.
Latency : closest one to my country (check via ping, the lower respond than the connectivity is great).
Based on that requirement I choose $15 package from vultr.
This is a long time draft that I thought already publish till I update some wordpress plugin. My friend who open software house came send me private message. He ask me if I have an idea why his email not delivered. He install a software called gitlab. This software basically manage operation of git from web based application.
After login to his server I realize that his vps provider blocked port 25. This port is designed for send email. To overcome this issue just open a ticket and told them about the problem. Attach the output of this command :
After few minutes (almost one hour) ticket responded and port unblocked. Now I see email arrive to mailbox.
