## Requirements

Please see the [requirements documentation](doc/install/requirements.md) for system requirements and more information about the supported operating systems.

## Installation

The recommended way to install GitLab is with the [Omnibus packages](https://about.gitlab.com/downloads/) on our package server.
Compared to an installation from source, this is faster and less error prone.
Just select your operating system, download the respective package (Debian or RPM) and install it using the system's package manager.

There are various other options to install GitLab, please refer to the [installation page on the GitLab website](https://about.gitlab.com/installation/) for more information.

You can access a new installation with the login **`root`** and password **`5iveL!fe`**, after login you are required to set a unique password.

## Contributing

GitLab is an open source project and we are very happy to accept community contributions. Please refer to [Contributing to GitLab page](https://about.gitlab.com/contributing/) for more details.

## Licensing

GitLab Community Edition (CE) is available freely under the MIT Expat license.

All third party components incorporated into the GitLab Software are licensed under the original license provided by the owner of the applicable component.

All Documentation content that resides under the `doc/` directory of this repository is licensed under Creative Commons: CC BY-SA 4.0.

## Install a development environment

To work on GitLab itself, we recommend setting up your development environment with [the GitLab Development Kit](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-development-kit).
If you do not use the GitLab Development Kit you need to install and setup all the dependencies yourself, this is a lot of work and error prone.
One small thing you also have to do when installing it yourself is to copy the example development unicorn configuration file:

    cp config/unicorn.rb.example.development config/unicorn.rb

Instructions on how to start GitLab and how to run the tests can be found in the [getting started section of the GitLab Development Kit](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-development-kit#getting-started).

## Software stack

GitLab is a Ruby on Rails application that runs on the following software:

- Ubuntu/Debian/CentOS/RHEL/OpenSUSE
- Ruby (MRI) 2.4
- Git 2.8.4+
- Redis 2.8+
- PostgreSQL (preferred) or MySQL

For more information please see the [architecture documentation](https://docs.gitlab.com/ce/development/architecture.html).
