I'm interested in a setting up a staging site for the website, athough
I'm not ansible literate although it doesn't really need much. Just
nginx, python and a few libs.
Yeah I'm extremely novice with ansible myself, but it's said to be
pretty newbie friendly so probably just a matter of a tutorial or two.
Ian's ansible code has been fairly easy to follow.

Shouldn't it be nginx for consistancy? Apache's a bit of a beast for
just simple file hosting (even though it's CentOS default httpd)
Perhaps it should, yes, but I have Apache experience but no nginx to
speak of, and like I mentioned this is temporary and I'm doing what's
expedient more than what's long term supportable. Later maybe in a year
or so, once we understand needs more precisely we'll replace it with
something fully ansibled and nginxed down the line.
are you planning on Ubuntu machines or CentOS machines? (or does it
These will be Ubuntu 16.04.
