How to install Ansible on your favorite Linux distribution

Ansible logo

Ansible is an open source, SSH-based configuration management, automation and deployment tool from Red Hat (via acquisition). It’s in the same market as Chef and Salt, but because it relies on SSH, something that’s already installed on your servers, it’s the easiest tool to use for managing and working on remote servers.

This post shows how to install it on your favorite Linux distribution.

Install Ansible on Debian/Ubuntu-based distributions

To install Ansible on any Linux distribution that uses Debian’s Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) for package management, use the following command:

# Install Ansible on Debian-, Ubuntu-based distributions

sudo apt install ansible

#

Install Ansible on Fedora/CentOS-based distributions

To install Ansible on any Linux distribution that’s based on Fedora or CentOS, use one of the following commands:

# Install Ansible on Fedora-, CentOS-based distributions
# Using DNF

sudo dnf install ansible

# If your distribution is still using Yum, use this next command

sudo yum install ansible

#

Install Ansible on Arch Linux-based distributions

To install Ansible on any Linux distribution that uses pacman for package management, use the following command:

# Install Ansible on Arch Linux-based distributions

sudo pacman -S ansible
