Gitea ignores conf/app.ini


Hi folks,

I installed gitea on a server about a year ago using docker. (Without docker-compose)
I have added /var/gitea as the volume /data and edited /var/gitea/gitea/conf/app.ini. Recently I got a report that “It was not working anymore”, so I checked it and gitea was in a stuck in a loop while starting. It still is by the way.

But most importantly it is ignoring my /var/gitea/gitea/conf/app.ini. For instance I have set SSH_PORT = 10022 but the log says:

Dec 19 21:46:09 syslogd started: BusyBox v1.28.4
Dec 19 21:46:09 sshd[14]: Server listening on :: port 22.

[keeps repeating]

Can anyone help me out with that? Has gitea changed some paths?


My installation works again after I have updated to 1fb7ecd2eb51b4eb2a1abd4df9a0a6ebfd4d327384bcb66512a0f256adc79931.

I still think that it is pretty annoying that an update completely breaks an installation.
