This guide assumes that you are trying to install Etherpad Lite on a server running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS where you have SSH access.

  • Install Ansible on your local machine.
  • Setup a SSH key pair if you don't already have one
  • copy your public key to the remote host: ex. ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/
  • copy these files to a directory on your local machine
  • add the DNS for your server to your inventory.ini
  • run the playbook: ansible-playbook install.yml --extra-vars='host=pad_server user=username' -i inventory.ini
  • sit back and relax :)
