### Using HTTPS
To recapitulate what is needed to use GitLab with HTTPS:
1. In `gitlab.yml` set the `https` option to `true`
1. In the `config.yml` of gitlab-shell set the relevant options (see the [install GitLab Shell section](#install-gitlab-shell) of this document).
1. Use the `gitlab-ssl` nginx example config instead of the `gitlab` config.
To use GitLab with HTTPS:
1. In `gitlab.yml`:
1. Set the `port` option in section 1 to `443`.
1. Set the `https` option in section 1 to `true`.
1. In the `config.yml` of gitlab-shell:
1. Set `gitlab_url` option to the HTTPS endpoint of GitLab (e.g. `https://git.example.com`).
1. Set the certificates using either the `ca_file` or `ca_path` option.
1. Use the `gitlab-ssl` Nginx example config instead of the `gitlab` config.
1. Update `YOUR_SERVER_FQDN`.
1. Update `ssl_certificate` and `ssl_certificate_key`.
1. Review the configuration file and consider applying other security and performance enhancing features.
Using a self-signed certificate is discouraged but if you must use it follow the normal directions then:
1. Generate a self-signed SSL certificate:
```
mkdir -p /etc/nginx/ssl/
cd /etc/nginx/ssl/
sudo openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -x509 -nodes -days 3560 -out gitlab.crt -keyout gitlab.key
sudo chmod o-r gitlab.key
```
1. In the `config.yml` of gitlab-shell set `self_signed_cert` to `true`.
