Re-run Gitea first time installation?


#1

Hi,

Is it possible to re-run the Gitea first time installation wizard?

Kind regards
Martin

What happens when you backup then navigate to /install?

Not sure what you mean by “backup”. But if i navigate to /install I just get a 404 error message.

I haven’t tried the install route a second time but if it 404s I’m guessing it’s a one time deal. But that’s just an assumption. As for backups you run the gitea dump command and specify your config file as mentioned in the Backup & Restore docs. If your site has stuff you don’t want to lose it’s probably a good idea to put on a scheduler and send to an encrypted cloud storage like mega.nz for safekeeping.
