I have a user that's hosting with me and he only has a standard cpanel user account and I don't want to give him root access to be able to install gitlab

how do I install it for him without breaking my security or cpanel/whm?

It doesn't look like from a quick Google search that there is an easy way to allow this. Other than the fact that it requires a root install which obviously means it has dependencies that may not be good for cPanel, I managed to find one dependency in particular that GitLab will not appreciate.

See the quote I found from here:

this requires mysql-libs, and as cPanel has its own version of
mysqllibs the dependency isn't met.
Sorry for the bad news and hope this helps.

how do you get git working so the cpanel user can use it without fullpaths?
Hello,

Yes, as mentioned in the referenced post, it's available at:

/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/git

Thank you.
