Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Installs passenger for Apache 2.



Tested on Ubuntu 10.04. Should work on any Ubuntu/Debian platforms.


Opscode cookbooks:

  • apache2
  • build-essential


  • passenger[:version] - Specify the version of passenger to install.
  • passenger[:max_pool_size] - Sets PassengerMaxPoolSize in the Apache module config.
  • passenger[:root_path] - The location of the passenger gem.
  • passenger[:module_path] - The location of the compiled passenger apache module.



Installs the passenger gem.


Installs the passenger gem and enables the module in Apache2.


For example, to run a Rails application on passenger:

include_recipe "rails"
include_recipe "passenger_apache2"

web_app "myproj" do
  docroot "/srv/myproj/public"
  server_name "myproj.#{node[:domain]}"
  server_aliases [ "myproj", node[:hostname] ]
  rails_env "production"

A sample config template is provided, web_app.conf.erb. If this is suitable for your application, add 'cookbook "passenger"' to the define above to use that template. Otherwise, copy the template to the cookbook where you're using web_app, and modify as needed. The cookbook parameter is optional, if omitted it will search the cookbook where the define is used.
