Deploying PHP applications with Ansible, Ansible Vault and Ansistrano

by Oliver Davies

Great! You’ve built your website, and now you just need to deploy it. There are various ways that this could be done - from (S)FTP, to SCP and rsync, to running commands like git pull and composer install directly on the server which is not ideal.

I’ve been using Ansible and Ansistrano to deploy a variety of PHP projects - including Drupal 7 & 8, Symfony, Laravel and Sculpin, as well as basic HTML websites, and found it to be very flexible and easy to install and use, and by the end of this talk we will have a fully working deployment playbook, deploying real code onto a real server.

Bio Oliver Davies (@opdavies) has been building websites since 2007, and speaking at meetups and conferences since 2012. He is a Full Stack Developer and an Acquia certified Drupal Grand Master, who also has experience developing with Symfony, Laravel, Sculpin and Vue.js, as well as with DevOps and systems administration.

He is a Lead Software Developer at Transport for Wales, a Drupal core contributor and mentor, and an open source and contribution advocate.

He regularly blogs and gives talks on various topics, maintains and contributes to various open source projects, and organises the PHP South Wales user group.
