Overview

This cookbook allows you to mirror remote Yum repos and serve them up via NGINX.

Requirements

Requires Chef 12.5 or later as this cookbook makes use of Custom Resources.

Attributes

yumserver::default

Key Type Description Default
['yumserver']['basepath'] String Where to store mirroed yum repos. /var/lib/yum-rep

Key Type Description Default
['yumserver']['nginx']['config_cookbook'] String Which cookbook to use for the NGINX config template. yumserver
['yumserver']['nginx']['servername'] String Server name to use in NGINX config. node['fqdn']

Usage

You always need to include the main recipe:

include_recipe 'yumserver::default'

This creates the basepath and installs the following packages:

  • yum-utils
  • createrepo
  • rsync

Additionally the recipe calls yumserver::_nginx which;

  • Sets-up the upstream NGINX repo.
  • Installs nginx.
  • Configures nginx to serve up the basepath.
  • Manages the nginx service.

repo_name String Name of the Yum repo. N/A
