Amazon Web Services – EC2 Server Setup – Free Server for 1 Year



This tutorial shows how to set up a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack on a new Amazon EC2 Linux Server through the AWS system. Shows how to setup and use the free tier T2.Micro server for one (1) full year provided by AWS. Throughout this tutorial I’ll talk about the advantages of using a fully self-administered virtual server and why I choose not to use other common hosting services.

  3. Great content. However, server management became a pain for me when i was heading an agency, therefore, it was best for me to shift Cloudways as they provided me with managed AWS cloud hosting with amazing extra features

  5. Five minute intro with NO info whatsoever, just opinion. Learn to get to the MEAT of tutorials, if you're going to put them up.

  6. good coverage, but your volume is low.. I've got my speakers, youtube and desktop all turned up nearly to max just to hear you at a normal level
    It looks like you quit publishing after the flood.. hope you're ok
    I'll be doing the SSL for HTTPS soon and as you said there's not a lot on that.. I've found a few, but I'd be curious to see what you had to say on the subject

  7. Absolutely excellent tutorial. Thanks! … as for if there is another IDE which allows connection with remote server – Well! I followed through this tutorial on Dreamweaver CC 2019 (because I’m already paying for subscription so might as well use it) and it has super easy option to do so…in fact, I can see live changes on my AWS IP address in the browser without having to choose ‘deploy’ every time I make a change (of course, you can turn auto deployment off if you like)…not to mention the live view, emmet etc that comes built-in…plus it can auto synced with my git, so I’m surprisingly impressed. The only thing is it doesn’t have built-in terminal (i use mac) but that’s not much of a problem as I fit my terminal window right underneath the dreamweaver to work seamlessly. Hope this helps, especially if someone already has adobe subscription but is not using dreamweaver, should definitely give it try.

  11. Hi, thank you so much for the tutorial. Everything worked for me except when I created the php file to communicate with the sql server. And it alway connection timed out. Do you why it would do that? I was able to connect to the data using web storm and sql workbench. Thank you!

  12. Thank you for the tutorial, it is awesome, one question though, how did you get WebStorm to fill the template of html by just typing HTML:5? thanks 🙂
