Chapter 2. Setting Up an Environment for Chef-Solo

We have already discussed some brief theory about Chef-Solo in the previous chapter, but we can't get anywhere until we've installed Chef-Solo and have had a hands-on experience with Chef.

This chapter will guide you with a step-by-step installation of Chef-Solo. We need some additional packages to get it working. Also, we will have a look into the configurations to get it working.

We will cover the following topics in this chapter:

  • Installation on Linux and Ubuntu

  • Prerequisites of Chef-Solo

  • Chef-Solo cookbook

  • Configurations

  • Downloading a few sample cookbooks

  • Execution of the recipes
