This module installs and configures Apache for Windows. We use Chocolatey for the installation and a Puppet Template file, which is pretty basic at the moment, but you can make it your own. We will continue to add on as we can and make it smarter and more robust.


Setup Requirements

This module does require Chocolatey to install the package, but you can define where it is installed to. Check out the Hiera data here.

Beginning with win_apache

include win_apache



We do create an apache_version fact and it is visible and usable in the environment. It is set to find the current version based on chocolatey output and we will keep tabs on if the scope changes and will update accordingly.


This has only been tested on Windows 2012 R2, but will be tested on Windows 2016 soon. If you try it and it works let us know.


Fork it, develop it, push it. Or just give feedback, you won't hurt my feelings.
