Puppet Nginx Passenger Module

This is a fork of puppet-nginx-passenger to install nginx with passenger using default ruby version on debian wheezy or ubuntu precise.

After inclusion, this module ensures that any user in group www-data is able to deploy through tools such as capistrano or mina, this of course as long as you have right ssh configuration (keys or forwarding) in place.

This module installs Nginx using puppet-rvm. Please, read the documentation before you begin. This module has been tested on Ubuntu Precise (12.04). For custom types, do not forget to enable pluginsync:

[main]
pluginsync = true

Basic usage

Install nginx_passenger with

include nginx_passenger

By default installs on /opt/nginx, there are some variables you might override

class {'nginx_passenger':
    ruby_version      => 'ruby-1.9.3-p125',
    passenger_version => '4.0.23',
    installdir        => '/opt/nginx',
    logdir            => '/var/log/nginx',
    www               => '/var/www',
}

A custom installation might look like this:

node webserver {
    class { 'nginx_passenger':
      installdir => '/usr/local/nginx',
      logdir     => '/usr/local/logs/nginx',
    }
}

An advanced installation using nginx source would look like the following. Take a look at the pagespeed module for help with downloading the source.

class { 'nginx_passenger':
    nginx_source_dir => '/home/vagrant/nginx-1.4.2',
    nginx_extra_configure_flags =>  '--add-module=/home/vagrant/ngx_pagespeed-release-1.6.29.5-beta'
}

Virtual Hosts

You can easily configure a virtual host. An example is:

nginx::vhost { 'www.example.com':
    port => '8080'
    rails => true,
}

The rails attribute is optional and set to false by default. However, if you want to deploy a rails app, use this attribute and the rails template will be used instead.

SSL

You can enable SSL for a virtual host like so:

nginx_passenger::vhost { 'www.example.com': 
  ssl  => on,
  ssl_certificate  => '/etc/ssl/example.crt',
  ssl_certificate_key => '/etc/ssl/example.key',
  ssl_default_server => true    # optional, to set this as default SSL server
}
