Posted on by J. Mays

Ansible is an automation engine, similar to Chef or Puppet, that can be used to ensure deployment and configuration consistency across many servers, and keep servers and applications up-to-date. Though, unlike some other tools, Ansible does not require a client component/agent.

Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing Ansible, an automation tool, on Fedora 20.
  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 20 server, and I’ll be logged in as non-root user. If you need more information then visit our tutorial on How to Add a User and Grant Root Privileges on Fedora 20.

Step #1: The Installation

As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages:

sudo yum -y update

Then let’s install Ansible and any required packages:

sudo yum -y install ansible

Step #2: Verify The Installation

Check the version of Ansible that is installed:

ansible --version

Which should yield something similar to:

ansible 1.3.4
