+This tutorial assumes you have a Ubuntu 14.04 droplet on Digital Ocean with 2GB of RAM. If you use a smaller droplet with 1Gb of RAM, GitLab will run out of memory some times and crash. With a smaller droplet, it will simply not work.

+To configure a website domain with apache virtual hosts, duplicate the file ```/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf``` and rename it to something like ```example-website.com.conf```. Than change the files configurations:
78
+
79
+```
80
+<VirtualHost *:80>
81
+  ServerName example-website.com
82
+  ServerAdmin johndoe@gmail.com
83
+  DocumentRoot /var/www/example-website.com/public_html
84
+  ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
85
+  CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
86
+</VirtualHost>
87
+```
88
+
89
+After creating the virtual host, add it to the enabled-sites and restart apache:
90
+
91
+```bash
92
+a2ensite example-website.com.conf
93
+apache2 restart
94
+```
95
+
96
+Don't forget to create a virtual host for your gitlab domain.
