Handling Passwords with Chef Solo


#1

Hello,

I’ve just started to use Chef Solo and have been really pleased with it, but am curious as to how people are currently managing passwords with it. This hasn’t been an issue for most things, but I’ve now built up a fairly complete cookbook for a Rails server, and can see that I need to manage the MySQL root password and the password for a system account in order to fully automate the setup.
