Mattermost, Inc.

Errors with CLI on GitLab Omnibus Installation

I’ve tried following the directions in the docs to use the Mattermost CLI like this:

cd /opt/gitlab/embedded/service/mattermost

sudo -u mattermost /opt/gitlab/embedded/bin/mattermost --config=/var/opt/gitlab/mattermost/config.json version

But I am just getting this as a result. Any idea what’s going on here?

Hi, @nickt

Based on the error you shared here:

may I know if the suggestion in the [SOLVED] Build error: Server not connecting to dockerhost topic helps to solve the problem?

Just tried it, but that didn’t help. I don’t think the GitLab Omnibus is using docker to run Mattermost, is it? I thought it was running Mattermost some other way. Doing a docker ps -a doesn’t show anything running.
