How to Install HashiCorp’s Vault on Ubuntu 16.04
Let’s download HashiCorp’s Vault, unzip and then run it in development mode first.
Download HashiCorp’s Vault
Use wget to get the Vault’s runtime collateral.
wget -o vault-download.log https://releases.hashicorp.com/vault/0.6.2/vault_0.6.2_linux_amd64.zip
Check the download logs with
Unzip and Run HashiCorp’s Vault
Ensure that unzip is installed on the system. The Infrastructure as Code IDE (Infrastructure Development Environment) installs unzip by default. Once that is done you can unzip it and then fire up your development vault.
sudo unzip -q vault_0.6.2_linux_amd64.zip -d /usr/local/bin
vault server -dev
On Ubuntu the “vault” file should automatically be created with execute permissions allowing us to immediately run it in dev mode. That’s just the beginning, now let’s learn to actually use this very powerful DevOps configuration and secrets management system.
Ruby Highlighting Test
Okay the Wiki Text is different.
Let’s test pasting in some ruby code to see whether the syntax highlighting works as well as it should.
theTimeNow = Time.now julianDays = Date.today.yday julianDayN = sprintf '%03d', julianDays yearDayRef = theTimeNow.strftime("%y") + julianDayN hourMinRef = theTimeNow.strftime("%H") + theTimeNow.strftime("%M") dayNameRef = theTimeNow.strftime("%a")
The test seems to have worked out well. The formatting is all good.
