hi everyone, thanks for your support . I got the solution. here are the steps to install a module manually. 1. copy the module with the same class name in the init.pp to /etc/puppet/modules folder. 2. create a manifest which contains the content include <class_name>. 3. puppet apply manifest</class_name>
