With this post I’m starting the series about deploying WordPress on Amazon AWS EC2. I’ll try to explain step by step what am I doing and why. If you know how to do something better or faster, please leave your comment on specific post. I’ll be happy to learn some new things or best practices. 🙂
Many people probably have set of tools which they like to use. Someone like this Linux distribution, someone else prefer that. Someone like Apache server and someone prefer Nginx. I won’t argue with that and I don’t think that one approach is better than another in every single situation. In many cases it’s just matter of preference. I’ll use following setup:
- Ubuntu 14.04 Server (in time of writing this text it’s newest LTS version)
I’m assuming that you registered your Amazon AWS account so I’ll proceed straight to the first step – launching your EC2 instance.
