I installed PuppetMaster on my Ubuntu 12.04. There were no errors but on checking the /etc/puppet folder, I am unable to locate either the puppet.conf file or the site.pp file. The only folders created on installation are:

ubuntu:/etc$ ll puppet
total 16
drwxr-xr-x   4 root   root   4096 Nov 20 14:49 ./
drwxr-xr-x 106 root   root   4096 Nov 20 14:49 ../
drwxr-xr-x   2 root   root   4096 Nov 20 14:49 manifests/
drwxrwx--x   8 puppet puppet 4096 Nov 20 14:49 ssl/

I followed the steps here

What did I do wrong? How do I fix it? please help

Can you start over with the installation after uninstalling? It would be helpful to see a transcript of the commands you ran as well as the output from each in order to troubleshoot this. Before you do that, can you recursively list the contents of /etc/puppet? Are there any files in the folders?
