Passenger stack, zero to hero in under five minutes

Scripts for Sprinkle, the provisioning tool

How to get your sprinkle on:

  • Get a brand spanking new slice (ubuntu please)
  • Create yourself a user, add yourself to the sudoers file
  • Apt-get update
  • Set your slices url / ip address in deploy.rb (deploy.rb.example provided)

From your local system (from the passenger-stack directory), run:

sprinkle -c -s install.rb

After you've waited for everything to run, you should have a provisioned slice. Go forth and install your custom configurations, add vhosts and other VPS paraphernalia.

Other things you should probably consider:

  • Close everything except for port 80 and 22
  • Disallow password logins and use a passphrased RSA key

Wait, what does it install?

  • Apache (Apt)
  • Ruby enterprise (Source) [includes rubygems]
  • Passenger (Rubygem)
  • Libmemcached (Source)
  • MySQL (Apt)
  • Git (Apt)


  • Ruby
  • Capistrano
  • Sprinkle (
  • An Ubuntu based VPS (known to not work on Debian Etch, haven't looked into why)
