Puppetlabs module for Apache

Apache is widely-used web server and this module will allow to configure various modules and setup virtual hosts with minimal effort.

Basic usage

To install Apache

class {'apache':  }

To install the Apache PHP module

class {'apache::php': }

Configure a virtual host

You can easily configure many parameters of a virtual host. A minimal example is:

apache::vhost { '':
    priority        => '10',
    vhost_name      => '',
    port            => '80',

A slightly more complicated example, which moves the docroot and logfile to an alternate location, might be:

apache::vhost { '':
    priority        => '10',
    vhost_name      => '',
    port            => '80',
    docroot         => '/home/',
    logroot         => '/srv/',
    serveradmin     => '',
    serveraliases   => ['',],


Since Puppet cannot ensure that all parent directories exist you need to manage these yourself. In the more advanced example above, you need to ensure that /home/ and /srv/ directories exist.


  • A cast of hundreds, hopefully you too soon
