I have been following the Install guide to setup gitea with docker and ssh passthrough. However when I attempt to clone a repository, the clone process starts, but hangs indefinately:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:TestUser/TestRepo.git Cloning into 'TestRepo'...
The directory TestRepo is created but only the .git directory and some files inside it are created, but nothing else in TestRepo directory.
I checked the docker-compose logs output on the gitea host and this line appears:
gitea | Accepted publickey for git from 172.28.0.1 port 42784 ssh2: RSA <SSH public key>
/home/git/gitea/data/gitea/log directory is empty.
ctrl-c to stop the clone process, the following is output from the client:
fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
and for docker-compose logs:
gitea | Received disconnect from 172.28.0.1 port 48356:11: disconnected by user gitea | Disconnected from user git 172.28.0.1 port 48356
I have checked permissions for the .ssh and gitea directories:
drwx------ 2 git git 4096 Sep 18 12:31 .ssh drwxrwxr-x 4 git git 4096 Sep 18 12:35 gitea
Also, before following the steps to add ssh container passthrough I tested ssh on a non standard port (i.e.
git clone email@example.com:2222:TestUser/TestRepo.git) and was able to clone the repo without issue.
I’ve tried recreating the host ssh key and used different machines and get the same result. Any advice on how to resolve this would be much appreciated!
For reference, this is my docker compose yaml:
version: "3" networks: gitea: external: false services: server: image: gitea/gitea:1 container_name: gitea environment: # The UID and GID match the git user on my system - USER_UID=127 - USER_GID=137 - GITEA__database__DB_TYPE=postgres - GITEA__database__HOST=db:5432 - GITEA__database__NAME=gitea - GITEA__database__USER=gitea - GITEA__database__PASSWD=<password> restart: always networks: - gitea volumes: - /home/git/gitea/data:/data - /home/git/.ssh/:/data/git/.ssh - /etc/timezone:/etc/timezone:ro - /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro ports: - "3000:3000" - "127.0.0.1:2222:22" depends_on: - db db: image: postgres:13 restart: always environment: - POSTGRES_USER=gitea - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=<password> - POSTGRES_DB=gitea networks: - gitea volumes: - /home/git/gitea/postgres:/var/lib/postgresql/data
and my system is ubuntu 20.04 64bit
