Setting up Atlas of Living Scotland - AtlasOfLivingAustralia/documentation Wiki

Setup the Atlas of Living Scotland

The Atlas of Living Scotland has been setup using a selection of ansible scripts. Most of these scripts are in the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) repository ala-install.

This is here to provide an example of a system setup which goes beyond the ala-demo playbook, setting up more system components.

There are a few additional ansible playbooks in this repository that have been used to setup the system. The ansible inventories that have been used are in a private repository.

Getting started

To reduce typing, set an unix alias up like so which points to the PEM file that you will use against the virtual machines:

export alias ansible-als='ansible-playbook --private-key ~/.ssh/XXXXXXXXX.pem -u ubuntu -s'
