Installing Chef Server (Updated)

A while ago, in conjunction to some work with Razor and the Chef Broker for Razor, I needed to setup a Chef Server (here). This has recently become much much simpler:

On a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install, the following will turn it into a Chef Server running Chef 11.

# Update the system
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get install ruby ruby-dev libopenssl-ruby rdoc ri irb build-essential wget ssl-cert vim screen openssh-server git curl unzip -y

# Install Chef Server
wget && sudo dpkg -i chef*.deb && sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure
