Automatic Deploy website script

Hello fellas,

Here I am providing a script to automatically install and configure your server for a domain for Debian style system (Ubuntu, Debian, etc..). The only argument provided to script is the name of website. It will automatically do the following:

  • Create document root.
  • Create logs directories.
  • Create access and error logs.
  • Copy sample config to apache.
  • Edit the sample config to meet the new website.
  • Enable the site.
  • Restart the web service.

After the script has been invoked, you can access the site.

function success()
if [ $? == 0 ]
echo "[OK]"
echo "[Failed]"

echo "installing $1 domain on web server..."
echo "Creating document root" && mkdir -p /var/www/html/$doc && success
echo "creating logs directory" && mkdir -p /var/log/apache2/$doc && success
echo "creating access logs" && touch /var/log/apache2/$doc/access.log && success
echo "creating error logs" && touch /var/log/apache2/$doc/error.log && success
echo "copying sample config to apache" && cp sample.cfg /etc/apache2/sites-available/$doc
echo "creating configuration file" && cat sample.cfg | sed "s/$doc/g" > /etc/apache2/sites-available/$doc && success
echo "enabling site" && a2ensite $doc && success
echo "restarting apache2" && service apache2 restart && success
