SSH connection to gitlab server not working

ss flag

I have recently installed a gitlab server on a Fedora Server VM hosted locally on my computer. To install the gilab server I used this command : sudo yum install -y gitlab-ce.

I had no errors during the installation but when I try to connect to the gitlab instance with the command ssh [email protected] I have this message :

Last login: Sat Apr 22 16:33:11 2023 from

instead of :

Welcome to GitLab, @username!

according to the gitlab documentation.

Also when I try to clone a project I have the following error:

Clonage dans 'mytestproject'...
fatal:'Octodex/repositories/mytestproject.git' does not appear to be a git repository.
fatal : Impossible de lire le dépôt distant.
Veuillez vérifier que vous avez les droits d'accès et que le dépôt existe.

The repo I want to clone is a public repo. And I added the generated ssh public key in gitlab.

I don’t know how to resolve these problems.

Gitlab is most probably running on a different port than the default port 22. You are connected to your host instead of gitlab.

@GeraldSchneider the default port used by gitlab server is the port 22 for ssh and i haven't found a config file in the .ssh directory of the git user that could override this.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
