Synopsis

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

login_name

string / required

The webfaction account to use

login_password

string / required

The webfaction password to use

name

string / required

The name of the domain

state

string

Whether the domain should exist

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

subdomains

list / elements=string

Any subdomains to create.

Default: []

Notes

Note

  • If you are deleting domains by using state=absent, then note that if you specify subdomains, just those particular subdomains will be deleted. If you don’t specify subdomains, the domain will be deleted.

  • You can run playbooks that use this on a local machine, or on a Webfaction host, or elsewhere, since the scripts use the remote webfaction API. The location is not important. However, running them on multiple hosts simultaneously is best avoided. If you don’t specify localhost as your host, you may want to add serial: 1 to the plays.

  • See the webfaction API for more info.
