passenger_apache2 Cookbook

Installs passenger for Apache 2.

Requirements

Requires Chef 0.10.10+ and Ohai 0.6.10+ for platform_family attribute use.

Platforms

Tested on the following platforms:

  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
  • CentOS 5.8, 6.3

The source install method was used on CentOS. It may work on other platforms with or without modification.

Cookbooks

Opscode cookbooks:

  • apache2
  • build-essential

Attributes

  • node['passenger']['version'] - Specify the version of passenger to install.
  • node['passenger']['max_pool_size'] - Sets PassengerMaxPoolSize in the Apache module config.
  • node['passenger']['root_path'] - The location of the passenger gem.
  • node['passenger']['ruby_bin'] - Sets PassengerRuby in the Apache module config and is used for passenger module configuration. Defaults to node['languages']['ruby']['ruby_bin'].
  • node['passenger']['module_path'] - The location of the compiled passenger apache module.
  • node['passenger']['install_method'] - Includes the "source" (gem install) or "package" recipe. Default "source."
  • node['passenger']['apache_mpm'] - Override with an "override_attribute" (in a role, environment or with node.override) to "worker" or "threaded" to use apache2-threaded-dev package. Otherwise this assumes prefork.
  • node['passenger']['package']['name'] - Name of the package for passenger, default is nil, so this must be set before using the "package" install method/recipe.
  • node['passenger']['package']['version'] - Specify the version of the passenger package to install. Uses version attribute above by default. To install the version available by default (latest, usually), delete the attribute in a recipe with this line:

    node.set['passenger']['package'].delete('version')
    

Recipes

default

Installs passenger from gem (source) or package depending on the value of the install_method attribute.

mod_rails

Installs the passenger gem and enables the module in Apache2.

source

Installs passenger as a RubyGem.

package

Installs passenger as a Package.

Set the install_method attribute to package, then set the package['name'] attribute to the correct package for your platform. The recipe does not yet handle adding yum repositories for RHEL platforms, so that should be done in another recipe until COOK-2414 is resolved.

Set the node['passenger']['package']['version'] attribute to the correct value for your system's available package repository if necessary. By default the value is nil which will install the latest package version from the distribution package manager.

Usage

For example, to run a Rails application on passenger:

include_recipe "rails"
include_recipe "passenger_apache2"

web_app "myproj" do
  docroot "/srv/myproj/public"
  server_name "myproj.#{node[:domain]}"
  server_aliases [ "myproj", node[:hostname] ]
  rails_env "production"
end

A sample config template is provided, web_app.conf.erb. If this is suitable for your application, add 'cookbook "passenger"' to the define above to use that template. Otherwise, copy the template to the cookbook where you're using web_app, and modify as needed. The cookbook parameter is optional, if omitted it will search the cookbook where the define is used.
