I've been trying to install the "gitlab-ce" port which has a dependency to the gitlab-pages. 

After a fresh install I first got an error message about not present "shared/pages" folder:

level=fatal msg="could not change directory into pagesRoot" error="chdir shared/pages: no such file or directory"

Simply creating it in the ${gitlab_pages_dir} solved the problem, but then I instead got the warning:

level=warning msg="failed to initialize GitLab client for `-domain-config-source=auto`" error="GitLab API URL or API secret has not been provided"

Checking the gitlab-pages service I first noticed the startcmd function uses a variable not defined in the service file at all: ${gitlab_pages_args}. In order to be able to configure the pages daemon I set it to gitlab_pages_args="-config ${gitlab_pages_dir}/config.ini" and created this config file with the following content:


restarting the service now instead gives me the error message:
level=fatal msg="Failed to load config" error="expected 32 bytes GitLab API secret but got 24 bytes

Am a bit lost how I solve this issue. Do you have any ideas or something that I've done really wrong here?

Best Regards,
