Server Setup#

The generated codebase contains a /devops folder with the tools needed to provision and set up a basic installation of your Plone project using Ansible and Docker.

Install Dependencies#

Change to the devops folder in your project directory.

cd devops

And then install all dependencies.

source .env_dev
make clean
make setup

This will create a new Python 3 virtual environment with Ansible.

Provisioning the Server#

We are using Vagrant in this training, and to create a new Vagrant box, as defined in the Vagrantfile, run:

make provision

Ansible playbook#

Configure SSH key#

Edit the group_vars/all/users.yml file and replace the line public_keys: [] with the following.

      - '<your ssh public key>'

Run playbook#

Run the playbook to set up the server by installing base packages, creating UFW configuration, and adding users.

make run-playbook

For Production#

Create .env_prod, if it does not exist, setting all values defined in .env_dev, then run:

source .env_prod

Next add a file prod.yml in the folder inventory with information about the production server.

Finally, add a file plone-conference-prod.yml in the folder host_vars.
