Combine Git and Ansible to Manage Website Files
Adam Clegane loves cats. He loves them so much he's decided to have a bunch of pictures taken of them to publish on a website. Now that the website code has been written, it's time to deploy his masterpiece. The website, along with some irrelevant files, are located in this [GitHub link](https://github.com/linuxacademy/content-ex447-ansible-best-practice). You've been contracted to deploy the website to a newly provisioned server. The customer already has an Ansible host set up for your use, but there's no software to serve a web page installed. You'll have to use Ansible to install a web server and use `git` to pull down the website repository. >**Note:** Make sure to elevate to `root` once logged in. The reason for this is because of how the lab server's version of Ansible is installed. > *This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat.*

Write a Playbook to Install 'git' and 'httpd' on the Web Server
The provisioned web server currently doesn't have either
httpdinstalled. To resolve this, we need to use an Ansible playbook to install the required software.
Note: We will be using the term
httpdand "Apache" interchangeably throughout this lab.
Clone the Provided Repo and Provision the Website Files
gitis installed, we can clone the provided Git repository and put the files where they need to go. Finally, we can verify the website loads correctly.
