Installs and configures a CloudFoundry Router



  • Ubuntu

Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 10.04


Requires Opscode's bluepill cookbook for creating init scripts and trotter's cloudfoundry-common cookbook. Also requires Opscode's nginx cookbook for installing and configuring the nginx server that fronts the router.


This recipe will install a CloudFoundry Router on the target node along with the necessary configuration files and init scripts to run it. In addition, it will install and configure an nginx server that sits in front of the Router. To use in your recipes:

include_recipe "cloudfoundry-router"


  • cloudfoundry_router[:socket_file] - Unix socket for the connection between the router and nginx. Default is /tmp/router.sock".
  • cloudfoundry_router[:access_log] - Where to write the Router's access log. Default is File.join(node[:cloudfoundry_common][:log_dir], "vcap.access.log").
  • cloudfoundry_router[:log_level] - Log level for the router. Default is info".
  • cloudfoundry_router[:log_file] - Where to write the Router's logs. XXX (trotter): I'm not certain this attribute actually works. Default is File.join(node[:cloudfoundry_common][:log_dir], "router.log").
  • cloudfoundry_router[:pid_file] - Where to write the Router's pid. Default is File.join(node[:cloudfoundry_common][:pid_dir], "").
