    August 05, 2019

    August 5, 2019

    This article will cover the process of automating WordPress installation on multiple Ubuntu (Debian) nodes/servers using ansible.

    I would like you to first go through my previous post to get a good idea of "How Ansible works" and the problems you may face while setting up a basic ansible structure.
