This appendix is a variant of the instructions provided in Chapter 9 for Open Source Chef Server.
First, download the Chef Server install package from http://www.getchef.com/chef/install. We’ll be installing Open Source Chef server on CentOS 6.5, so choose “Enterprise Linux > 6 > x86_64”, as shown in Figure A-1. Choose to Download version 11.1.4 to get a download link to the package.
The download page might not match the images in this book exactly. However, the download and installation procedure should be the same.
The remaining steps necessary to install Chef Server are displayed below the download link:
sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure.
Assuming you have sufficient resources to install Chef Server locally along with a test node, let’s create a
chef-server cookbook, which we’ll use to install Open Source Chef Server. To maintain consistency with Hosted Enterprise Chef, create the directory chef-repo/cookbooks and create the
chef-server cookbook in that directory.
Create the chef-repo/cookbooks directory, and make it the current working directory.
Linux/Mac OS X:
mkdir -p chef-repo/cookbooks$
cd chef-repo\cookbooks ...
