Repo's usually don't have latest version


#1

Since repo’s don’t have the latest (stable) version of many applications,
is there an example of a chef cookbook that downloads the latest version
and then sets up the startup scripts etc?

I’m specifically looking for redis and/or mongo but it doesn’t really
matter as I imagine the general pattern would be the same.

i.e. any example will do

(I will be running Ubuntu)

many :wink: see the infochimps cookbooks and my ark LWRP

great!
So this will somehow create the startup/shotdown scripts by itself or is
that something you can to configure? (I can’t see how it can just do this
magically by itself).

Any example usages so I can see how works?

erm, now that I think of it, won’t you have to compile mongodb and redis?
my ark resource won’t handle that, look for the tar resource on github.com,
that is probably what you need
