SiteHost Ansible Collection

Ansible is an open-source automation tool used for configuration management, application deployment, and task automation. It enables infrastructure as code (IaC), which means that system configurations, application deployments, and even cloud provisioning can be defined and managed using human-readable YAML files. Our SiteHost Ansible collection allows you to perform actions such as provisioning servers on SiteHost with an Ansible script.


You can use ansible-galaxy to install the SiteHost Ansible Collection:

ansible-galaxy collection install
