Terraform deploy a single server

#Introduction

In this tutorial, We will create an EC2 server. How to deploy a single server using Terraform.

Structure folder and files

Created Deploy-EC2-Server folder contains files as below:

main.tf
output.tf
provider.tf
securitygroups.tf

Terraform deploy a single server

Create new file main.tf with the content as below

resource "aws_instance" "devopsroles-lab01" {

 ami = "ami-0c2d06d50ce30b442" 
 instance_type = "t2.micro"
 vpc_security_group_ids = ["${aws_security_group.webserver_security_group.id}"]
 key_name = "terraform-demo"
 tags = {
	 Name = "Devops Roles"
 }

}

On AWS, we created key pair terraform-demo as the picture below

Create a new file provider.tf with the content as below

provider "aws" {
	region = "us-west-2"
}

New file securitygroups.tf with the content as below

resource "aws_security_group" "webserver_security_group" { 

    ingress {
        from_port = 22
        to_port = 22
        protocol = "tcp"
        cidr_blocks = [ "116.110.26.100/32"]
    }
    
    egress {
    from_port       = 0
    to_port         = 0
    protocol        = "-1"
    cidr_blocks     = ["0.0.0.0/0"]
  }
    
}

Create a new file output.tf with the content as below

output "public_ip" {
    value = "${aws_instance.devopsroles-lab01.public_ip}"
}

First, we run below to initialize, download the plugins and validate the terraform syntax…

terraform init
terraform validate

The output terminal is as follows

Applying a template

$ terraform apply

The output terminal is as below

C:\Users\HuuPV\Desktop\Terraform\EC2>set AWS_PROFILE=devopsroles-demo

C:\Users\HuuPV\Desktop\Terraform\EC2>terraform apply

Terraform used the selected providers to generate the following execution plan. Resource actions are indicated with
the following symbols:
  + create

Terraform will perform the following actions:

  # aws_instance.devopsroles-lab01 will be created
  + resource "aws_instance" "devopsroles-lab01" {
      + ami                                  = "ami-0c2d06d50ce30b442"
