Need to deploy an Ansible Controller to run Playbooks from that uses the latest build and is easy to upgrade/configure.
Install Ansible from the latest release on GitHub.
Create an Ansible Controller directory that will run the latest version via git clone and setup the shell with the Ansible environment scripts.
Clone the Ansible repo
Go to the GitHub project page github/ansible
Choose a release version or the dev branch and clone.
sandor@theargo:$ mkdir ~/Codestuff/AnsibleController <-- Ansible runs from here sandor@theargo:$ mkdir ~/Codestuff/ansibles <-- Playbooks go here sandor@theargo:$ touch ~/Codestuff/ansibles/ansible_hosts <-- Server inventory goes here sandor@theargo:$ cd ~/Codestuff/AnsibleController sandor@theargo:$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:ansible/ansible.git
Run the environment script
To upgrade Ansible just go back into the AnsibleController directory and use git to get the latest.
You are now setup to run Ansible from the Controller. Because the inventory file is inside the playbook dir or ~/Codestuff/ansibles/ansible_hosts it will not get overwritten if you change the AnsibleController dir.
Push some SSH public keys and start pushing playbooks!
