Ansible configuration for $HOST

This repository configures a server based on Ubuntu 20.04

If contains:

  • Ansible files for deployment
  • Vagrantfile for local testing

Local VM for testing using Vagrant

You can spin up a local staging VM and provision it using Vagrant and VirtualBox. Test the playbook before tagging/deploying it. See the /test directory

Command Description
vagrant up Spin up a staging VM and provision it.
vagrant provision Provision (redo) a running VM with the Ansible playbook.
vagrant destroy -f Destroy the VM completely

By default, it uses two cores with 2GB RAM, which can be overwritten with the environment variables VB_CPUS and VB_RAM.

Provisioning the target system with Ansible

You need the secret for the vault to decrypt the secrets. Editing the secrets can be done via ansible-vault group_vars/all/vault.yml.

To provision the actual server completely:

ansible-playbook site.yml

Each role has an ansible-tag with the same name. You can run individual roles using the tags, e.g.:

ansible-playbook site.yml --tags "traefik"
