Forge comes with a lot of built-in functionality, but what if you want to make some changes on your own? You can always SSH into your servers to make individual changes, but some times there are changes you want to make on a regular basis, or to every one of your servers.
To address this need–regularly running the same, pre-written script across one or many servers–Forge has the concept of a Recipe. Let’s try one out.
Step 1: Find a recipe
Step 2: Add the recipe
Go to the Recipes page on Forge, and add the recipe.
Step 3: Run the recipe
You’ll now see your recipe at the bottom of this page in the “Your Recipes” section.
Click the green “play” button to show a popup of all of your servers; check the servers you want to run the script on, press the “Run” button, and that’s it!
Once the recipe is finished running, Forge will email you the results.
Now you can create your own arsenal of readymade recipes and run them at your will on your server(s). Once the collection of recipes at ForgeRecipes really grows, there’s a ton of potential for these recipes to be the means by which we install and update features that Forge doesn’t manage out of the box.
That’s it! Enjoy!
