I just launched an Amazon ec2 instance, with Windows Server 2008 32 bit as the OS.
I manage to connect to instance via remote control, what should I do next?
I will need to use Apache, php and mysql (and phpmyadmin). (I been using wamp all the time, till now), should I install the Wamp again? Whats your advise (previously, all these this was taken care by my hosting company, but now, i need to do it by myself).
I just need a simple web server.
I have read from xampp website (following are quoted from xampp website):
As mentioned at another place, XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for developers in a development environment. XAMPP is configured is to be as open as possible and to allow the web developer anything he/she wants. For development environments this is great but in a production environment it could be fatal.
Here a list of missing security in XAMPP:
The MySQL administrator (root) has no password. The MySQL daemon is accessible via network. phpMyAdmin is accessible via network. The XAMPP demopage is accessible via network. The default users of Mercury and FileZilla are known.
Based on this fact, should I install apache, php and mysql manually?
