How to setup your website in Amazon Web Services (Intro)

Recently, I’ve moved my website (webindream.com) to Amazon Web Services. To me it was easy and fun. It was also adventurous as I was doing it for the first time. Now, I’m going to share with you, how did I do it.

Prerequisites:

  • You should be familiar and comfortable to work with CLI (Command line interface).
  • You should be able to run ssh command from your command line (cmd for windows / terminal for linux or mac OS X.)

I’ve divided the tutorial into 4 parts.

Part 1: 

Setup Amazon Web Services (AWS) Account

Setup amazon EC2 instance.

Part 2: 

Access EC2 Service from terminal or command line prompt.

Install Apache PHP MySQL on EC2 server

Part 3: 

Access EC2 File system using FileZilla and upload files

Part 4: 

Add your domain name in Route 53

Change DNS of your domain name.

Check your website on server.
