You have a fundamental (though far from uncommon) problem: you are business-dependent on a service that you don't understand. There is no way for you to acquire a technical view of what this person is doing without reposing equal trust in some third-party, and what basis have you for preferring the word of a third-party over the word of someone whose work ...

You are running a version of Ubuntu which is past its end of life date. You can no longer install software from the repositories as they are moved shortly after the release hits EOL. The preferred method of dealing with this is to upgrade to the latest long-term support (LTS) release. If you truly need old packages from an EOL distribution, you can find ...

Judging by this question, I may get chastised for this but: Although not ideal, it's better than nothing. Personally, I'd go with something like Crashplan whose sole purpose is backup. However, anything that gets a secured copy of your data offsite is better than just keeping one copy of your data in house. Of course, take into consideration an appropriate ...

Yes, instances are permanently deleted after termination. If you want to keep the server around, assuming you're using EBS root instances, you can stop it, which will not delete the server. Then you can start it again when needed.

"Your" Cloudfront distribution is not a single thing at a single place. It's a virtual entity on a global distributed network, and the more places from which it is being accessed, the more potential IP addresses you may see, because the requests are routed to the requester's nearest endpoint, using DNS. If I access your distribution, that's going to ...

Next step - contact AWS support (open a ticket) and explain the issue - ask them to look at the logs of the ELB. They might claim there is nothing wrong, but if the issue is repeatable, you're in luck - you can demand live support during an occurrence.

You don't place this on the instance. Rather you provide it as the user-data field when launching a new instance.

The 4 values you got from Route53 are name servers - they provide the location of where your records are stored (i.e. with Route53). In Route53, you need to have your actual A records. Previously, you (presumably) had one or more A records with GoDaddy which pointed to the elastic IP address of your EC2 instance, now, you need to recreate the same records in ...

The space exists on the disk, you just need to make it available. The simplest thing to do here is to Use fdisk to create a new partition Create a filesystem using mkfs Add the new partition into a convenient filesystem location using mount. Update the /etc/fstab as appropriate.

AMIs are somewhat unique in that the kernel is separate from the image. It depends on the provider and whether they support the upload of AMI-style images. The Rackspace Public Cloud supports upload of images in VHD format, while Rackspace Private Clouds support the use of AMIs. As of October 2013 Digital Ocean did not support image uploads. CloudStack ...

Phoebus' answer covers the question as such (+1). Another option would be to slightly alter your approach and use Packer instead, which is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration: Packer is easy to use and automates the creation of any type of machine image. It embraces modern configuration ...

Amazon Windows AMIs come with the "EC2Config" service installed. If we can make some assumptions about your environment (like... you're not also running some service called EC2Config locally), then you may be able to take advantage of this. If you can list the services available on your machine, you can search for the EC2Config service. Here's an example ...

For full system backups in EC2, you should go with EBS Snapshots. For data backup in S3/Glacier I would go with S3cmd in Linux systems and Cloudberry Backup tools in Windows (Not free, but worths each dollar). S3cmd is a simple command line tool you can use in your standard backup scripts to push a copy into a S3 bucket. For Glacier rotations, use S3 ...

Exit code 126 is the bash error code for a command that was found but couldn't be executed. See here and here. For example: $ /dev/null -bash: /dev/null: Permission denied $ echo $? 126 When you're not forcing internal-sftp, OpenSSH server uses a program called sftp-server to handle remote SFTP sessions. My guess is that the sftp-server program on this ...

Solved the problem I had to format the volume and then mount on my linux installation i.e lsblk to see name of device , in this case xdf, then sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/xdf sudo mkdir /mnt/data sudo mount /dev/xdf /mnt/data sudo chmod 777 /mnt/data

RHEL stands for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and is licensed (not-free) software, so the extra cost pays for the price of the software. The GA releases are CentOS, which is free. CentOS is basically a free version of RedHat, or at least as close as is feisable - the differences are generally pretty negligible, except when it comes to support and use of ...

This is a pretty open-ended question, and as jeffatrackaid stated in his note above, this could just end up turning into a debate. But having said that, here are my two cents as I see it, having managed a decent sized environment spanning multiple AWS regions for the past couple years. If all you need is to host static content then S3 is by far the easiest ...

So what happens if I upload a file/archive, then later, the file changes locally, and the next time I do a backup, how does Glacier deal with this since it can't overwrite the file with a new version? Per the Glacier FAQ: You store data in Amazon Glacier as an archive. Each archive is assigned a unique archive ID that can later be used to retrieve ...

Replication between RDS and servers outside RDS is not currently supported by AWS.

Reserved Instances simply work as DISCOUNT coupon / Offer in the super-market. Example : If the Offer Says, buy 2 units of Product A and get one Product B absolutely Free. So you look into the offer and take 2 units of Product A and one Unit of Product B. During the billing as well, the Point of Sales Person also doesn't look into each and every product ...

I am using Chef on Azure but I believe I've discovered the correct setting for this. @hek2mgl was very close, but his method will be overwritten everytime you reconfigure, which I don't think is practical. In your /etc/chef-server/chef-server.rb file, add the following line: chef_server_webui['cookie_domain'] = 'FQDN' Where "FQDN" is your fully ...

It is due to the fact that aws-s3 is doing something evil. If you look at the code in that stack trace, you can see that they open class Class and add cattr_reader and cattr_writer. ActiveSupport also does this and adds methods by those same names to Module I do not have the code but I am pretty sure that when you use Passenger, it is including the ...

I assume that you are using CentOS, or another RHEL-derivative, like Amazon Linux. The commands that are failing for you, are failing because they are specific to Debian derivatives, which you are clearly not using. In RHEL, there is no need to enable mod_rewrite in Apache, it comes with mod_rewrite enabled. All you really need to do, is to create a file ...

Yes, reserved instances are a billing construct wherever they're available (RDS, EC2, ElastiCache, etc.). No changes are necessary for the instance - if you buy a m3.large instance in us-west-2a, one of your m3.large instances in us-west-2a will immediately begin charging at the lower hourly rate.

Since you were hosting both your domain and website with Godaddy, you probably didn't have to deal with the DNS, they did it automatically for you. Now that you have Route 53, you need to create a zone for your domain, create all the records such as A record and the MX records for your email to point to the elastic ip of your EC2 instance. In conclusion, ...
