If you mean not installing a module from puppet forge then you can create/generate/install module locally using following command:

puppet module generate <modulename>

For more details:

I hope, this is your expected answer.

puppet module generate mvikra-awstats then i have edited init.pp under manisfests:- package { 'awstats': ensure => 'present', }

package { 'GeoIP': ensure => 'installed', require => Package['awstats'], } package { 'perl-Geo-IP': ensure => 'installed', require => Package['awstats'], } package { 'perl-libwww-perl': ensure => 'installed', require => Package['awstats'], }

and now i am trying to install that module with command:- puppet module install mvikra-awstats

Notice: Preparing to install into /etc/puppet/modules ... Notice: Downloading from ... Error: Could not find release information for this module (mvikra/awstats) (HTTP 410) Error: Try 'puppet help module install' for usage

dono what i am missing here.

why you are installing it if you have it already? installing a module directly fetches the module from forge and keeps it under modules dir. Follow the link I mentioned earlier. Just keep your module name awstats. Again, follow the document you'll get to know what next.

I am completely bowled out. I dont see awstats log analyzer installed on my machine. where as when i do "puppet apply init.pp" .. it installs awstats. To be specific i wanted to build a module to install awstats on vagrant machine.

Can you please check what your module path is? "puppet config print modulepath --section master" you can find you module in the given path of the output.
