apache2 Cookbook

Cookbook Version CI State OpenCollective OpenCollective License

This cookbook provides a complete Debian/Ubuntu style Apache HTTPD configuration. Non-Debian based distributions such as Red Hat/CentOS, ArchLinux and others supported by this cookbook will have a configuration that mimics Debian/Ubuntu style as it is easier to manage with Chef.

Debian-style Apache configuration uses scripts to manage modules and sites (vhosts). The scripts are:

  • a2ensite
  • a2dissite
  • a2enmod
  • a2dismod
  • a2enconf
  • a2disconf

This cookbook ships with templates of these scripts for non-Debian based platforms.

Maintainers

This cookbook is maintained by the Sous Chefs. The Sous Chefs are a community of Chef cookbook maintainers working together to maintain important cookbooks. If you’d like to know more please visit sous-chefs.org or come chat with us on the Chef Community Slack in #sous-chefs.

Cookbooks

Depending on your OS configuration and security policy, you may need additional recipes or cookbooks for this cookbook's recipes to converge on the node. In particular, the following Operating System settings may affect the behavior of this cookbook:

  • SELinux enabled
  • Firewalls (such as iptables, ufw, etc.)
  • Compile tools
  • 3rd party repositories

On RHEL, SELinux is enabled by default. The selinux cookbook contains a

permissive
recipe that can be used to set SELinux to "Permissive" state. Otherwise, additional recipes need to be created by the user to address SELinux permissions.

To deal with firewalls Chef Software does provide an iptables and ufw cookbook but is migrating from the approach used there to a more robust solution utilizing the general firewall cookbook to setup rules. See those cookbooks' READMEs for documentation.

On ArchLinux, if you are using the

apache2::mod_auth_openid
recipe, you also need the pacman cookbook for the
pacman_aur
LWRP. Put
recipe[pacman]
on the node's expanded run list (on the node or in a role). This is not an explicit dependency because it is only required for this single recipe and platform; the pacman default recipe performs
pacman -Sy
to keep pacman's package cache updated.

Platforms

The following platforms and versions are tested and supported using test-kitchen

  • Ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04
  • Debian 9/10
  • CentOS 7+
  • Fedora Latest
  • OpenSUSE Leap

Notes for RHEL Family

Apache2.4 support for Centos 6 is not officially supported.

Usage

It is recommended to create a project or organization specific wrapper cookbook and add the desired custom resources to the run list of a node. Depending on your environment, you may have multiple roles that use different recipes from this cookbook. Adjust any attributes as desired.

# service['apache2'] is defined in the apache2_default_install resource but other resources are currently unable to reference it.  To work around this issue, define the following helper in your cookbook:
service 'apache2' do
  service_name lazy { apache_platform_service_name }
  supports restart: true, status: true, reload: true
  action :nothing
end

apache2_install 'default_install' apache2_module 'headers' apache2_module 'ssl'

apache2_default_site 'foo' do default_site_name 'my_site' template_cookbook 'my_cookbook' port '443' template_source 'my_site.conf.erb' action :enable end

Example wrapper cookbooks: basic site ssl site
