    2. Configure your WordPress sites in your group_vars/ folder.
      1. In group-vars/users, add your github’s public keys
      2. In group-vars/staging/wordpress_sites.yml, update example.comwhich you’ll need for step 9.
      3. In group-vars/staging/vault.yml, update which you’ll need for step 9.
      4. Swap out site host for your desired IP/domain under site_hosts: canonical:

    4. Verify that your IP/domain has been added to /etc/hosts
    5. Follow these instructions and uncomment out the deploy hook.
    6. Generate Salts by following these instructions and replace them on lines 15-22. Use the Salts for Trellis.

Deploying to DNS (in staging or production):

    1. Update A Records (in DigitalOcean), to your new IP (assuming you’re using the default IPv4, instead of IPv6)
      1. @ [host name]
      2. www [host name]
    2. Replace with your domain in group_vars/[environment]
      • Also add a www. redirect
      • Make sure the repo url is set correctly
      • * Optional: Set ssl: enabled: true if you want HTTPS enabled via Letsencrypt
    3. Replace your_server_hostname with domain in hosts/[environment]
    4. Commit to your Git Repo
    5. Add hosts in /etc/hosts:
      1. [IP-address],
      2. [IP-address]
    6. In Trellis, provision the server by running: ansible-playbook server.yml -e env=[environment]
      1. If that returns an SSH error, then check out your known_hosts file, and delete any duplicates/un-used IPs
      2. Re-run #4
    7. Run ./bin/ staging (sitename is defined in group_vars/[environment])
    8. *After you have provisioned and deployed, double check to make sure salts were generated, run: ansible-vault view group_vars/[env]/vault.yml
