Notes

Note

  • 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 <https://docs.webfaction.com/xmlrpc-api/>`_ for more info.
