Managing servers with Puppet

Managing servers with Puppet

So, I’ve been working on this project recently. In this project there’s no use of version control – in fact, we don’t even have staging or development environments. All changes were just made to the live server, in an ad hoc way, by a variety of people. And inevitably we’ve ended up in a situation where we don’t fully understand what we have, and we’re scared to change anything in case something else breaks.

Sounds awful, right? Chances are that you’ve been working on this project too. Of course I’m referring to system administration.
