I had a FreeNAS server system with a Gogs system in a jail. Through some “upgrade madness” I upgraded this to TrueNAS and past the point where the original style of jails was supported. As a result I am left with a complete (but non-functional) installation of Gogs (including all of my repositories)
In moving forward I decided to go ahead with a Gitea installation. I am now at the point where I want to migrate the old Gogs data to the new Gitea system, but I have no idea how best to do this.
I saw the Upgrade from Gogs page, but the first step in this is to run “gogs backup”, and I don’t have a functional system to do that with. It also looks like the instructions suggest starting a migration to Gitea 1.0 and then upgrading Gitea, but I am already on Gitea 1.12
I thought that this other question (Using pre-existing local bare repositories? ) might help, but I can’t seem to follow exactly what is proposed (or if it actually helps in my situation).
So how should I proceed?
