I will need to deploy Conflouence to about 100 servers in a couple of months and am looking for a way to create a mostly preconfigured ond partially dynamically configured installation with the goal of rolling out these Confluence to the servers as quickly, efficiently and with as little manual configuration as possible.
Any suggestions or advice?
100 servers - yikes
Anyway, assuming Linux (I am running Ubuntu 14.04) and running behind Tomcat (no Apache) I have the following process for a rather smaller variant of that where I migrate the production system to a test box to test upgrades or other biggish changes to the installation:
When I follow this process, I get, with little effort, a mirror of the source machine on the target. The only time consuming thing (since I have a largish installation) is moving the files to the target machine. If you're pre-configuring and have basically empty Confluence installations, that won't be as much of an issue. The bigger issue will be getting the host system automagically configured (users, permissions, port mapping, etc).
Maybe investigate deployment with Puppet so can be fully automated after first one is built?
