Ansible Role: Pimp My Log

Build Status

Installs Pimp my Log.


Requires PHP to be installed on the server, and a web server like Apache, Nginx, IIS. You can get Pimp my Log set up pretty quickly with this role in tandem with geerlingguy.apache and geerlingguy.php available on Ansible Galaxy.

Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values (see defaults/main.yml):

pimpmylog_install_dir: /var/www/pimpmylog

The location where Pimp my Log will be installed. You should configure a virtual host or server entry pointing to this directory so you can access the interface. Otherwise, you could choose a location that's within an existing docroot, e.g. the default docroot /var/www/html/pimpmylog, and access Pimp my Log at http://localhost/pimpmylog/.


The git repository URL from which Pimp my Log will be cloned.

pimpmylog_version: master

The version of Pimp my Log to install. Can be any valid tag, branch, or HEAD.

pimpmylog_grant_all_privs: false

The setup of Pimp my Log allows for auto-configuration if the installation directory has 777 privileges, but this is an insecure way to install Pimp my Log. If you're installing on a local development environment, this is relatively harmless to set to true to ease installation... but if you're running this on a production or publicly-available server, don't even think about changing this value!



Example Playbook
