I’ve tried Gitea today for the first time. I have successfully installed it on an ODROID XU4 device and I’m storing its repos on some USB mounted hard disks.
At first Gitea looks to be working just fine. But when I reboot the machine and try to log into Gitea again (from the webpage), it always reverts back to the Initial configuration page, asking me to configure the database, the domain, the paths, etc. This page should only be displayed on first install, not after every reboot.
I’m guessing that it cannot save some data somewhere and that’s why it always thinks that it’s initializing itself again from scratch. Can you tell me what it is checking to determine if it is the first install or not, so that I can track down what is wrong?
Machine type: ODROID XU4
OS: Ubuntu 18.04
System disk: SD card
Gitea repository storage disk: HDD over USB.
