Checking out Ansible for deploying a demo rails application.
- That you followed steps in my last article
- You have the IP address and root password to a server somewhere(cloud, vagrant ...etc)
From there we execute the following to install ansible and configure it with our servers ipaddress:
sudo yum install ansible echo 'railsapp ansible_ssh_host=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ask_pass' > /etc/ansible/hosts ansible all -m ping
Next we create a playbook that will checkout our rails application and run it on the server.
Add the following content.
--- - hosts: webservers tasks: - name: install ruby yum: pkg=ruby state=latest - name: install rubygems yum: pkg=rubygems state=latest - name: install rails gem: name=rails state=latest - name: check out application git: repo=https://github.com/asdqwex/rails-demo dest=/opt/railsapp - name: run rails command: rails server chdir=/opt/railsapp
