Enabling acl support on an ubuntu droplet (automated provisioning)

Posted August 25, 2014 2.7k views

Some webframeworks like the PHP framework Symfony require the use of acl .

As the installation of acl on ubuntu requires the modification of /etc/fstab, i’m wondering if i need to worry about modifying the droplets fstab during provisioning using ansible.

You shouldn’t have any problem editing /etc/fstab in order to enable using acl I just did a quick test run, and everything works as expected. This Ubuntu wiki page should be useful.
