Using Puppet but don't want to have to write your own modules? The Puppet Forge is an online repository hosted by PuppetLabs that stores public modules anyone can use in their Puppet infrastructure. These modules are labeled by quality and rated, so users are able to best gauge which module suits their needs before adding it to their Puppet setup.

In this lab, we'll find a PostgreSQL module on the Puppet Forge, and use it — alongside our main manifest — to install PostgreSQL on our node and ensure a new database is created and ready for use.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
