Install Chef with Babushka
This is a snippet from my blog post "Bootstrapping Chef in one command with Babushka"
Install wget if not already installed:
apt-get install wget
Bootstrap babushka using babushka:
bash -c "`wget -O - babushka.me/up`"
Follow the default prompts and you should be good to go.
Next we run my
'chef user' dep:
babushka ivanvanderbyl:'chef user'
Notice how we don't have to tell Babushka where to get it from? By default Babushka looks for a Github repository called
<GITHUB USERNAME>/babushka-deps.git and clones it, then loads it into its internal list.
My babushka-deps repo contains the dep
This will run the list documented below, and towards the end create a new user account. Make sure you don't call the user
chef because it will cause things to fail in the next step. I usually use
Now logout from root and reconnect as the chef user you just created to complete the next step: actually installing chef-server.
This is where the magic happens, run this dep and you will have a complete Chef Server installation, optionally with
babushka ivanvanderbyl:'bootstrapped chef'
This will verify that all services have started correctly and if so report success, otherwise it will output a log file so you can trace what happened and hopefully fix the problem. (Please report bugs with this process below)
