For detailed info about the logic and usage patterns of Example42 modules read README.usage on Example42 main modules set.

USAGE - Module specific usage

  • Install apache with a custom httpd.conf template and some virtual hosts

     class { 'apache':
       template => 'example42/apache/httpd.conf.erb',
     }
    
     apache::vhost { 'mysite':
       docroot  => '/path/to/docroot',
       template => 'example42/apache/vhost/mysite.com.erb',
     }
    
  • Install mod ssl

    include apache::ssl
    
  • Manage basic auth users (Here user joe is created with the $crypt_password on the defined htpasswd_file

    apache::htpasswd { 'joe':
      crypt_password => 'B5dPQYYjf.jjA',
      htpasswd_file  => '/etc/httpd/users.passwd',
    }
    
  • Manage custom configuration files (created in conf.d, source or content can be defined)

    apache::dotconf { 'trac':
      content => template("site/trac/apache.conf.erb")
    }
    
  • Add other listening ports (a relevant NameVirtualHost directive is automatically created)

    apache::listen { '8080': }
    
  • Add other listening ports without creating a relevant NameVirtualHost directive

    apache::listen { '8080':
      $namevirtualhost = false,
    }
    
  • Add an apache module and manage its configuraton

    apache::module { 'proxy':
      templatefile => 'site/apache/module/proxy.conf.erb',
    }
    
  • Install mod passenger

    include apache::passenger
    

USAGE - Basic management

  • Install apache with default settings

    class { "apache": }
    
  • Disable apache service.

    class { "apache":
      disable => true
    }
    
  • Disable apache service at boot time, but don't stop if is running.

    class { "apache":
      disableboot => true
    }
    
  • Remove apache package

    class { "apache":
      absent => true
    }
    
  • Enable auditing without making changes on existing apache configuration files

    class { "apache":
      audit_only => true
    }
    
  • Install apache with a specific version

    class { "apache":
      version =>  '2.2.22'
    }
    

USAGE - Default server management

  • Simple way to manage default apache configuration

    apache::vhost { 'default':
        docroot             => '/var/www/document_root',
        server_name         => false,
        priority            => '',
        template            => 'apache/virtualhost/vhost.conf.erb',
    }
    
  • Using a source file to create the vhost

    apache::vhost { 'default':
        source      => 'puppet:///files/web/default.conf'
        template    => '',
    }
    

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file

    class { "apache":
      source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/apache/apache.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/apache/apache.conf" ],
    }
    
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

    class { "apache":
      source_dir       => "puppet:///modules/lab42/apache/conf/",
      source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
    }
    
  • Use custom template for main config file

    class { "apache":
      template => "example42/apache/apache.conf.erb",      
    }
    
  • Define custom options that can be used in a custom template without the need to add parameters to the apache class

      class { "apache":
        template => "example42/apache/apache.conf.erb",    
        options  => {
          'LogLevel' => 'INFO',
          'UsePAM'   => 'yes',
        },
      }
    
  • Automaticallly include a custom subclass

    class { "apache:"
      my_class => 'apache::example42',
    }
    

USAGE - Example42 extensions management

  • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default) Note that this option requires the usage of Example42 puppi module

      class { "apache": 
        puppi    => true,
      }
    
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

      class { "apache":
        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => "myhelper", 
      }
    
  • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default) This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

      class { "apache":
        monitor      => true,
        monitor_tool => [ "nagios" , "monit" , "munin" ],
      }
    
  • Activate automatic firewalling This option requires the usage of Example42 firewall and relevant firewall tools modules

      class { "apache":       
        firewall      => true,
        firewall_tool => "iptables",
        firewall_src  => "10.42.0.0/24",
