There are three ways in which they can be updated:
- Doing nothing. Both sites are updated every midnight UTC time. This is done via a couple of cron jobs using the ansible script described in the next section.
- Using an Ansible script to update the source.
Install Ansible and add the staging server IP to your
/etc/ansible/hostsfile (check if the IP is up to date):
Checkout this gist with the Ansible playbook. The different tasks run are self-explanatory:
Run the playbook with:
ansible-playbook update_source.yml -u amercader -s
If no variables are passed, the site "master" is updated with the latest "master" branch. To update another CKAN site and/or version pass the following variables:
ansible-playbook update_source.yml -u amercader -s --extra-vars="site=beta version=release-v2.1"
- Manually: ssh into the staging server (currently s084), cd into the CKAN source directory (eg /usr/lib/ckan/beta/src/ckan), discard local changes, pull the latest source, rebuild front-end and restart Apache, just as any other source install.
