Hosting WordPress Using Amazon S3Go to Lab
The lab directions related to CloudFormation need to be updated due to the change of the CF page. The Stack name (step 26 ) must occur after the template source from S3 is selected.
expects you to write some linux bash cron job to repeatedly regenerate your site with no guidance
Lab didn't work properly. The static WordPress page generated links that pointed to the EC2 instance instead of to the other static pages.
Need to add the "sudo /bin/sh wpstatic.sh" command into the cron job to ensure any changes to the blog are captured in the static bundle.
I would of liked to see real wordpress on AWS with some way of Wordpress being aware of the s3 API
It was useful to see, but the end of the course was a little bit confusing (What was suppose to be checked for on the static side? ... my new post suppose to be there or not?)
Far too simple for what was described as an advanced lab.
While I do appreciate that it's an expert lab, I think it would be very helpful to show a basic solution to the "dynamic" problem, and let the student figure out the comments/ratings themselves. Very cool idea though, would love to try this for a more static site I manage...
ok, but too basic for "expert" level lab
