Sometimes during version upgrades you might end up with some wrong CSS or
missing some icons. In that case, try to precompile the assets again.
For Omnibus-packages:
```
sudo gitlab-rake assets:precompile
```
Note that this only applies to source installations and does NOT apply to
omnibus packages.
For installations from source:
```
cd /home/git/gitlab
sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake assets:precompile RAILS_ENV=production
```
For omnibus versions, the unoptimized assets (JavaScript, CSS) are frozen at
the release of upstream GitLab. The omnibus version includes optimized versions
of those assets. Unless you are modifying the JavaScript / CSS code on your
production machine after installing the package, there should be no reason to redo
rake assets:precompile on the production machine. If you suspect that assets
have been corrupted, you should reinstall the omnibus package.
