Gitea and DroneCI setup on minikube

Hey guys, fairly new to kubernetes and trying to setup a CI pipeline locally. Want to practice integrating droneCI with a locally running Gitea instance on minikube. I have a Gitea instance with an OAUTH token created.

I have also deployed droneCI successfully with the following configuration:-

            secretKeyRef:
              name: drone-server-secret
              key: DRONE_RPC_SECRET

After deploying I have checked the logs of the server pod -

{"level":"info","msg":"main: internal scheduler enabled","time":"2021-07-11T15:54:58Z"}
{"admin":true,"level":"info","login":"gitea_admin","machine":false,"msg":"bootstrap: account created","time":"2021-07-11T15:54:58Z","token":"ajbADBMpSMcXyN5ILViNPOwQPDbstfTD"}
{"acme":false,"host":"drone.example.com","level":"info","msg":"starting the http server","port":":80","proto":"http","time":"2021-07-11T15:54:58Z","url":"http://drone.example.com"}
{"interval":"30m0s","level":"info","msg":"starting the cron scheduler","time":"2021-07-11T15:54:58Z"}

I then port-forward the droneserver pod to 8000:80. When I go to localhost:8000, the server does respond but the webpage is blank. Not sure if it is an authorization problem. Any ideas what the problem might be?

@pawanjot_singh ,

I can see you are using drone.example.com as your DRONE_SERVER_HOST, Ideally it should be same as the host you configured on gitea, could you please try to update and test.

@csgit thanks for you reply but that doesn’t work. I think it is because the url in the Gitea (and hence the drone host) server is required to be public, but I am running drone locally on minikube. That’s why currently in the url, I have listed in the format pod.namespace.svc.cluster.local so that gitea can communicate with drone which is inside the same cluster but different namespaces.
