These Chef cookbooks assume the following:

  • Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)
  • Chef 0.10.x server and client
  • No site-specific data such as IP addresses, users, etc.
  • Usage as a submodule in another repository containing roles, data bags, etc.
  • A minimal set of data bags containing: users, groups, certificates, apps and known ssh keys


  • LWRP or definition to simplify fetching and installing remote debian packages
  • Script to generate a skeleton top-level repository with example roles, data bags and an encrypted data bag secret
  • setup limits.conf for solr
