Gitwepo - Documentation


Gitwepo comes as a ZIP file containing an NSIS installer. Simply unzip your downloaded copy and run the installer :

  1. Accept License agreement.
  2. Specify an installation location.
  3. Installation starts.
  4. Upon completion, the installer will ask to start services and start the Gogs interface


The installer will set up services gitwepo_gogs and gitwepo_lighttpd 



Gogs interface will be available at https://localhost:



 You need to:

  • Register the first Gogs user which will have administrator privileges automatically.
  • Change the served hostname from localhost to something else in the etc/lighttpd.conf, so that the Gogs interface will be remotely available on that address. The lighttpd server comes with a a self signed certificate and redirects http to https for non-local requests.
  • Configure Gogs service by updating gogs/custom/conf/app.ini. By default, the service is available via HTTP/SSH at localhost and keeps configuration, repositories and logs in the gogs directory.
  • Update firewall rules so that HTTPS (443) and SSH (22) requests can be served.
  • Restart services.
  • (Optional) Replace the self-signed ssl certificate by your own.
  • Create Git repositories via the Gogs interface.
