what does ('www', 'www role automation is deprecated for Ubuntu 18.04 or later. Supported automations: base, chef, router.') error means
(nginx, ubunut 18.04)

Scalr will no longer support those roles in the future?
Or its just a temporary thing until you get this supported?

    All new major OS releases will no longer include support for the built-in automation noted above. All existing OS releases will have support for the built-in automation until their EOL.

    Would you provide some guides on how to build similar functionality over
    Scalr with other automation methods ?
    I'm sure many of your customers, just like me, depend on your automation
    and need to find a solution without becoming experts..

    Hi Nir,

    You should be able to do this with Orchestration within Scalr. Most of our customers exclusively use their own deployment and configuration scripts together with Scalr Orchestration, or other tools like Chef or Ansible. Take a look at our updated 3 Tier App tutorial on our older Wiki for some examples of scripts that might help get you started with deploying and configuring Nginx and MySQL. However, all existing OS releases will have support for built-in automation until their EOL, so you should be able to continue using those as-is in the near term. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Many thanks,
    Wm. Marc O'Brien
