GitLab shows us how to install GitLab Runner on a FreeBSD operating system. GitLab Runner, used in conjunction with GitLab CI, is an open source application created to run jobs and send results back to GitLab. See the link below for the full set of instructions.
Here are the steps to install and configure GitLab Runner under FreeBSD:
- Create the
gitlab-runneruser and group:
sudo pw group add -n gitlab-runner sudo pw user add -n gitlab-runner -g gitlab-runner -s /usr/local/bin/bash sudo mkdir /home/gitlab-runner sudo chown gitlab-runner:gitlab-runner /home/gitlab-runner
- Download the binary for your system:
