Ahh, my first blog post. Good Beginnings (:

This blog post is dedicated to sharing my experience with updating the FSCI’s GitLab instance update.
FSCI runs a free instance of GitLab Community Edition at for collaborative software development.
FSCI also hosts and maintains a lot of services for the community, you can check out the services here, these services are managed by volunteers.

After joining Software Freedom Camp 2021 Diversity Edition( Online mentorship programme organized by Free Software Community of India(FSCI) ) as a learner and I met a bunch of people who discuss about Free/Libre/Open Source Software and educate people about why it is important to use free software in our life maintaining freedom and privacy in this era of technology.

Along with Ravish and Sahilister we all updated it from GitLab v14.4.2 to Gitlab v14.4.4 it was a Security update, it took a lot of my time to update and upgrade the instance.

All thanks to Ravish and Sahilister for helping and teaching me.
