Switch to new repository

Site name is a custom domain https://www.mgocpa.com we would like to switch this to a new GitLab repository. What are the steps and would the site go down during the switch? How do we go about connecting the new GitLab repo to the site? Thank you.

Hi @tdorff

Under Site settings > Build & deploy there is a dropdown (in the Repository section) to Manage repository. You’ll find the option to link to a new repository here.

You’ll also find information in the Change linked Git repository section of the Repository permissions and linking documentation

Thanks. If I unlink and then link the new one would that make the site go down while it’s deploying? Or would it be okay to unlink after everything is working on the new repo?

No, the repository doesn’t impact the site that is already deployed.

Thanks for the confirmation. I did test a switch on staging and the site is not showing up, just says site can’t be reached. URL is https://mgo-stage.netlify.app/

I got this build error:
Command failed with exit code 1: CI= yarn generate (https://ntl.fyi/exit-code-1)

So did you follow the URL https://ntl.fyi/exit-code-1 and see posts related to this error code?

Without seeing the deploy log, there is no way of telling what caused the error. Can you provide a link to it or paste the contents here?

Here’s the content of the deploy log:

Two issues here @tdorff

First is you are using an outdated and no-longer-supported version of Node.js as shown

and noted

You need to update the version of Node.js used for building your site to at least v14. See this documentation regarding how to do this.

Second, it appears you haven’t set the build to static as per

See Nuxt - The target Property
