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. 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 23. To install ansible on CentOS 7, follow these instructions.
  • We’ll be working as a non-root user on a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 23 server.

Step #1: Install Ansible

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

sudo dnf -y update

Now we’ll install Ansible and any required packages:

sudo dnf -y install ansible

Step #2: Verify The Installation

Check the version of Ansible that is installed with:

ansible --version

Which should yield something similar to:

[user@user ~]# ansible --version
ansible 1.9.4
configured module search path = None
