Installation from package
Although there is a package of Gitea in Debian’s contrib, it is not supported directly by us.
Unfortunately, the package is not maintained anymore and broken because of missing sources. Please follow the deployment from binary guide instead.
Should the packages get updated and fixed, we will provide up-to-date installation instructions here.
brew tap go-gitea/gitea brew install gitea
A FreeBSD port
www/gitea is available. To install the pre-built binary package:
pkg install gitea
For the most up to date version, or to build the port with custom options, install it from the port:
su - cd /usr/ports/www/gitea make install clean
The port uses the standard FreeBSD file system layout: config files are in
bundled templates, options, plugins and themes are in
/usr/local/share/gitea, and a start script
To enable Gitea to run as a service, run
sysrc gitea_enable=YES and start it with
service gitea start.
Gitea is available as a 1-click install on Cloudron. For those unaware, Cloudron makes it easy to run apps like Gitea on your server and keep them up-to-date and secure.
The Gitea package is maintained here.
There is a demo instance (username: cloudron password: cloudron) where you can experiment with running Gitea.
