Creating Amazon EC2 Instances (for Linux)Go to Lab
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.
cutting and pasting commands from the instructions does NOT work. yum install of httpd, php did not work - needed to do it manually. needed to mkdir -p /var/www/html.
The directory /var/www/html was not available and the course didn't mentioned if I had to create or not. I assumed this was installed from the HTTPd server.
Got the basics down but the website did not function.
I couldn't SSH into the instance. I made sure the security group allowed inbound TCP from any IP, set my PEM file's security permissions to 400. Did some research on the net. Nothing.
Good starter for understanding how to create EC2 instances. It would be nice for future lab exercises to give more of an explanation to what Elastic IP addresses are.
