Hey there,

The great thing about shell scripting is that it starts with the exact commands you would use when doing the task at hand manually. A simple shell script that would install Apache on Fedora may look like:

#!/bin/sh
yum -y install httpd
systemctl enable httpd
systemctl start httpd.service

You would want to place those lines in a file that is executable. chmod +x script.sh will make script.sh executable. You could then execute the script by running ./script.sh

You can also use our User Data feature to automate software installations when creating a Droplet. Here is a repo of User Data scripts that we’ve already written.

Happy coding,
