This module automates the installation and configuration of a FusionForge instance. It creates the database, configures the Apache server, deploys configuration variables, and enables required plugins.


What fusionforge affects

Beyond the FusionForge configuration, the module installs a number of required packages and runs the FusionForge installer scripts (which in turn apply various configurations: they create a database and a set of Apache virtualhosts, they integrate the FusionForge database with PAM authentication, they install various cron jobs, and so on.

Beginning with fusionforge

The simplest use of the module is as follows:

    class { 'fusionforge':
      database_password     => 'nrstauie',
      database_password_mta => 'toto99',

This will install FusionForge from its upstream Git repository, using the 6.1 branch. A different repository URL can be specified using the $repository parameter, and a different branch/tag name can be specified with $release.


Most of the configuration can be managed using the class parameters. For instance:

  • $forge_name allows configuring the site name/title;
  • $web_host allows changing the host name to be used (defaults to the host's FQDN);
  • $default_country_code, $default_language and $default_timezone allow configuring localisation parameters;
  • many $use_* parameters control whether to enable or disable some FusionForge features;
  • the $plugins parameters (an array of strings) is used to configure the plugins to enable. It defaults to installing only scmgit, but many others are available.


No effort has been made to install multiple instances on the same host (that would be hard anyway because of the system users integrations).

Installing/enabling plugins is fine, but there is no code in the module to disable a plugin later on.


Development of this module is hosted on Adullact's Gitlab instance, at Contributions are welcome and should keep with the coding standards.
