Requirements

Make sure all dependencies have been installed before moving on:

Installation

The recommended directory structure for a Trellis project looks like:

example.com/      # → Root folder for the project
├── trellis/      # → Your clone of this repository
└── site/         # → A Bedrock-based WordPress site
    └── web/
        ├── app/  # → WordPress content directory (themes, plugins, etc.)
        └── wp/   # → WordPress core (don't touch!)

See a complete working example in the roots-example-project.com repo.

  1. Create a new project directory: $ mkdir example.com && cd example.com
  2. Clone Trellis: $ git clone --depth=1 git@github.com:roots/trellis.git && rm -rf trellis/.git
  3. Clone Bedrock: $ git clone --depth=1 git@github.com:roots/bedrock.git site && rm -rf site/.git
  4. Install the Ansible Galaxy roles: $ cd trellis && ansible-galaxy install -r requirements.yml

Windows user? Read the Windows docs for slightly different installation instructions. VirtualBox is known to have poor performance in Windows — use VMware or see some possible solutions.

Documentation

Trellis documentation is available at https://roots.io/trellis/docs/.

Local development setup

  1. Configure your WordPress sites in group_vars/development/wordpress_sites.yml and in group_vars/development/vault.yml
  2. Run vagrant up

Read the local development docs for more information.

Remote server setup (staging/production)

A base Ubuntu 16.04 server is required for setting up remote servers. OS X users must have passlib installed.

  1. Configure your WordPress sites in group_vars/<environment>/wordpress_sites.yml and in group_vars/<environment>/vault.yml (see the Vault docs for how to encrypt files containing passwords)
  2. Add your server IP/hostnames to hosts/<environment>
  3. Specify public SSH keys for users in group_vars/all/users.yml (see the SSH Keys docs)
  4. Run ansible-playbook server.yml -e env=<environment> to provision the server

Read the remote server docs for more information.

Deploying to remote servers

  1. Add the repo (Git URL) of your Bedrock WordPress project in the corresponding group_vars/<environment>/wordpress_sites.yml file
  2. Set the branch you want to deploy
  3. Run ./bin/deploy.sh <environment> <site name>
  4. To rollback a deploy, run ansible-playbook rollback.yml -e "site=<site name> env=<environment>"

Read the deploys docs for more information.
