Script: Backup all GitLab repositories to Synology NAS
View gitlab2nas.php
// This script will back up all your GitLab repositories to a specified location.
// I recommend creating a seperate GitLab user for backups.
// You'll need to generate a personal access token for that user with API access (in GitLab).
// Next, generate a SSH keypair for the NAS user and attach it to the GitLab user.
// Finally, create a scheduled task in your NAS config to run this script: "php /some/location/git2nas.php"
