comment Do i have to always carry *.pem file to log in my AWS server in other computer?
Passwords are not intrinsically insecure on ssh, provided you use one that is long and complex enough; passwords are not exchanged in the clear so you are still logging in over a secure channel. In principle they are less secure than using keys, but the main objection is that no one is going to remember (or want to key in) a password long enough to guarantee security. Using key pairs makes it trivial to maximise security and minimise hassle.

comment How to set inbound rule for Amazon ELB based on path
+1 to @ceejayoz. This solution even adds additional cost for no good reason in this use case.

comment Application access via AWS Load Balancer with autoscaling
Does your app rely on getting the IP address of the client from a header to create a session? If so, you may be seeing the load balancer IP rather than the client. The actual client IP can be found in the X-Forwarded-For header.

comment AWS EC2 - How can I recover files now that I'm no longer able to SSH into my server instance?
Sorry, while I said the instance has to be in the same region, I should have mentioned it has to be in the same zone as well - you can't attach a volume to an instance across zones either. If the volume is also in us-west-1b then it should work. Otherwise start an instance in us-west-1b and you should be ok.

comment AWS EC2 - How can I recover files now that I'm no longer able to SSH into my server instance?
I have to disagree that this is a duplicate. It's only incidentally about destructive chmod. It's actually about "I hosed my server and can't get back in, how do I recover my files". Perhaps we should be creating a new question for this (or finding one that answers it to link to)?

comment Use Amazon SNS to send nagios alerts
Have you tried fully qualifying the path to sns-publish in the script? It's likely that nagios will require that for security reasons.

I'm assuming that you did a stop of the original server not a terminate as `terminate will most likely clean up by deleting the root volume (@Daniel t probably should have emphasised this). Did you start up the instance in the same region? You can't attach volumes across regions.

comment multiple virtual hosts on EC2 ubuntu - cannot access second host, always accesses default
@FrandsHansen I'm interested to know why you suggest putting ServerName in the default host? It might help with debugging but I would have thought setting it in the virtuals would be fine.
