Traditionally web servers were built by issuing specific commands via the command line, this was time consuming and could lead to errors and misconfiguration of servers. With the advent of configuration management tools this process has been automated. In this session I will show users how to provision a Linux web server and install Wordpress on that server using Ansible and WP-CLI in mere minutes using an automated process. Ansible and WP-CLI and well-supported and free technologies available to all. I will also show users how to setup both systems on their own machines.
