ManageaCloud provisioner guide
- A server configuration contains one or several server blocks
- A server block contains a portion of the server configuration.
A server block can be configured in:
- Puppet manifests
- Chef cookbooks
- Docker containers
- ManageaCloud modules
- Shell (the generic interface)
This guide will show you how to create a server configuration that will contain a ManageaCloud module. If you want to know how to create the ManageaCloud module itself, please access the Sysadmin IDE Interactive Tutorial.
1 - Login to your ManageaCloud.com account
Sign in to you account
2 - Click on "New server configuration"
3 - Add some basic information
The first step is to create the server configuration itself. Title is required, description is optional.
4 - Select provisioner
Select the provisioner that you want to use to configure the server. In this case we will select "ManageaCloud".
5 - Select distribution
Choose a release that will be used for the server configuration. If the server configuration is meant to run in multiple releases, you can add it later.
6 - Select a ManageaCloud module
Select an existing ManageaCloud module or create one from scratch. Please note that you can always fork a configuration from the public modules as a base for your own. If you want to learn how to create ManageaCloud modules try our Sysadmin IDE Interactive Tutorial
