I decided to learn Ansible today and here’s what I came up with after a few short hours of testing. Note it’s only my first day, so I’m sure improvements can be made - I already have several in mind. Comments are definitely welcome. So far I’ve tested and verified with the server scenarios listed in the QA section of the readme.
If you’re unfamiliar, Ansible is used to automate the setup of freshly-provisioned servers. Once you provision a server with your hosting company, this ‘playbook’ will install NGINX, PHP7 and Grav (with a few other things) in just minutes. All you need to do is configure your DNS to point to your server and you’ll (hopefully) be good-to-go!
Note I created this playbook mainly as a learning exercise, though I will improve/maintain it based on my own needs and any feedback received. If it helps someone install Grav on their server that’s a plus
update-20170710: did a major overhaul of the playbook for improved efficiency, along with adding support for Amazon Linux and CentOS.
Current compatibility matrix:
|Amazon Linux 2017.03.1|
