I just started to learn ansible but would suggest the following modifications:

  • line 83:
    • org

      user: remoteuser
      
    • new

      remote_user: remoteuser
      ### The remote_user parameter was formerly called just user. It was renamed in Ansible 1.4 to make it more distinguishable from the user module (used to create users on remote systems).
      
  • line 107:
    • org

       # For this example, ${web.memcache} and ${web.apache} are both usable
      
    • new

      # For this example, ${web.memcache} and ${web.httpd} are both usable

hi,
is there a way to specify the become user is handlers part?

handlers:

  • name: restart apache
    service: name=apache state=restarted
    become=yes

I know this is out of date... but I'm going to say it anyways as an FYI-- in Line 433 you can no longer include handlers as of Ansible 2.0

This would be really cool to evolve and keep up to date to showcase a detailed changelog.

In term of using variable in hosts attribute (line 58)
ORIG:

hosts: $groups -- apply to all hosts specified in the variable $groups

REVISE:
hosts : group # No $

$ ansible-playbook playbook1.yml -e "group=myservers"
or
$ ansible-playbook playbook1.yml --extra-vars="target=myservers"

sudo: true is deprecated in favor of become: true

which editor u use for yaml?

@claudiols1979

@antoniopinarella you can use any text editor. I use vim for .yml and it works fine.
(Probably you found it out. However for new people searches. )

Can we please bury this Gist? it keeps showing up as clickbait in search engines while the syntax is horribly outdated.

I have made a fork and updated some of the content that has been deprecated.
