I had some GitHub → Gitea pull mirrors working, but I need to rotate the GitHub token. I could not find any documentation about how to do this, but I narrowed it down to the Mirror Settings part of the Settings page in the repository.
The Mirror Settings page shows:
Clone from URL:
I then paste my new GitHub Personal Access Token into the Password box, and click the Update Settings button below the Password field. I get a green message saying “The repository settings have been updated.”
I have verified that the HTTPS POST to https://gitea.mydomain.com/g-a-c/myrepo/settings does contain the new token in the
mirror_password field of the form data.
However. When I check the
gitea.log file, I still see a SQL update happening with the old token.

When I look inside the SQLite database manually, I see the old token assigned to repo 87
sqlite> select id,name,original_url,is_mirror from repository where id=87; 87|myrepo|https://oauth2:ghp_REDACTED_OLD_TOKEN@github.com/g-a-c/myrepo.git|1
And when I check the Git config file on the container filesystem, I see the old token
[remote "origin"] url = https://oauth2:ghp_REDACTED_OLD_TOKEN@github.com/g-a-c/myrepo.git
I’m running Gitea v1.17.1, inside a Docker container, with a SQLite database, behind Traefik as a reverse proxy.
