I have a situation and would love to hear your suggestions.
- I have a server that is hosting several important workflow applications on cloud.
- Changes are made to few add-ons apps on the server like httpd.conf files.
What I like to do:
Be able to capture the present state configuration of server with application settings etc.. completely and store the captured config and state information in a smart file that I can use to launch another server quickly that is a photo copy of the one I captured.
This is somewhat similar to what Chef achieves I believe, where it captures the installation and launch configs.
Whats the best way to achieve this.
