Ansible is a simple, agentless way to automate your infrastructure.
If you find yourself deploying WordPress over and over again, Ansible could save you a lot of time. With a few lines of YAML (a straighforward markup language), we will automate the typically tedious process of setting up WordPress on a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 server. We will install WordPress more or less according to the process outlined in this tutorial, but automatically. We will use two servers: A build server running Ansible, and a target server on which we will install WordPress using Ansible.
