Creating Amazon EC2 Instances (for Linux)Go to Lab
There was no www folder created so i couldn't test the web page
Very disappointing ! Only the EIP stuff is new, compared to the free lab... Takes not more than 40 min.
Many mistakes in lab instructions.
The DNS and Elastic IP addresses could not be accessed by my system. PuTTY access worked great. But there was no www/html underneath /var. I created them but the access wasn't available. I assumed I dd something wrong as the DNS name could not be pinged either... Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ec2-54-200-117-235.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com.
However, It would be nice to have some tips how to cleanup instances and other stuff (elastic IPs, EBS). Especially in what order it have to be done.
very good to get start on linux
a bit more. This took about 5 minutes. Sure wasn't an hour.
the labs for 2 hours is not required at all, it only gives simple instruction to create a new EC2 instance and assign EIP, that's all, less than 20 minutes. Waste my token.
