Using Ansible Modules to Manage File Content in Your Environment
When your web devs come up with an update to an application and you need to deploy it to 100 servers (sometimes more) doing so manually is a difficult task. While there are many ways to automate this process Ansible can handle it in addition to everything else it does. This lab will walk through a method of doing so. *This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat.*

Your playbook should look something like:
--- - name: copy webapp hosts: webservers become: yes tasks: - name: install webapp copy: src: /root/index.html dest: /var/www/html/index.html owner: apache group: apache mode: 0644
Copy and Execute the `db deploy` (deploy.sh) Script
There are two different methods of doing this in a playbook.
The first is to use
script, but it is commented out. Both can be seen in this code snippet.
- name: copy db script hosts: dbservers become: yes tasks: - name: copy deploy script # script: /root/deploy.sh copy: src: /root/deploy.sh dest: /opt/deploy.sh owner: root group: root mode: 0755 - name: Execute the script command: sh /opt/deploy.sh
Run the playbook with this:
You should not include the
db deployin this playbook.
--- - name: copy webapp hosts: webservers become: yes tasks: - name: install webapp copy: src: /root/index2.html dest: /var/www/html/index.html owner: apache group: apache mode: 0644
Run the playbook again:
