After trying to retrofit an existing Ubuntu Raring Amazon EC2 node to support Drupal (see PHP5 is installed, but Apache is displaying PHP as uninterpreted text. How can I get it to process it as PHP?), I decided to start with a fresh start and use
tasksel install lamp-server, which I was concerned might clobber something. I tried to follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Drupal , installing Drupal 7 from repositories, and an
apachectl restart runs with apparent success, but when I try to connect to the FQDN I use to shell in, from a web browser, Chrome says, "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to ec2-54-218-143-2.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com".
Could you point me to a preferred HOWTO to create a node running Drupal (as well as being able to support VirtualHosts with CGI scripts as well as static content)? Is there a not-obviously-advertised way to load an image on a host that will run Drupal?
Pasting in the security group ports for the instance:
22 (SSH) 0.0.0.0/0 Delete 80 (HTTP) 0.0.0.0/0 Delete
In other words, Amazon claims that it is allowing connections in on port 80.
