comment Amazon AWS 2-tier Setup
That's not true: I can provide a few cases where this would not work. You can allow access by security group which sounds like what you're describing.

comment How do I allow traffic between security groups in Amazon VPC?
You don't specify what the "traffic" consists of. Those are the two mechanisms for controlling flow and access, but you can't just test one of them: they both have to be right. More details on your route, your security group, and the tests you're performing are needed.

comment Are there simple command line tools to decode a SQL Injection request string?
Sure, but there are hundreds of request that use different techniques for obfuscating the actual request - I was hoping to be able to extract them from my logs, pipe them to a tool, and view the results.

I'm aware of Havij, and am very familiar with sql injection. But I can't find a simple tool to decode what ends up in the log.

@GregAskew: That question is asking what happened as a result of an attack. I'm looking for a tool to help me decode the various results.

comment Can I create a wildcard ssl cert for a subdomain?
That's an option, but I'm hoping there is a way to have all subdomains recognized.

@Edwin: logs seem to indicate everything is OK. I updated the question with logs.

comment Intermittent Server Error - MySQL or Apache?
@symcbean: I don't disagree, but if he's doing reporting that's probably a good starting place.

comment How should I configure my ELB health check when using NameVirtualHosts and redirecting to www?
I am already using the remote IP to log the requestors IP address (as opposed to the ELB IP) so the 3rd option worked - thanks!

comment How should I configure my ELB health check when using NameVirtualHosts and redirecting to www?
The problem with setting up a default vhost is that the IP address is going to change each time a new instance is spun up or rebooted, and I would like my default AMI to include support for the health check. I'll look into the other options.

comment How do I handle mysql replication in EC2 using private IPs?
@ceejayoz: It would be quick and easy if I understood networking a bit better :(

comment How do I handle mysql replication in EC2 using private IPs?
@ceejayoz: we are trying to duplicate an existing configuration, so moving to RDS isn't in the immediate future. I guess I need to read up on setting up VPC.

comment Error when trying to start Apache after installing SSL cert
@Fuzzyfelt: Turns out the cert was bad. If you want to write up the cert testing as an answer, I'll remove my answer & accept yours.

@mulaz: I actually have the paths specified, I just didn't put them there - I've updated the question.

I guess I should have mentioned that the path is there - I just didn't include it in the question.

comment AWS Instance stand-alone ssh connect string differences: root vs ec2-user
It's the AWS web console that's producing the root@ or ec2-user@ ssh commands, depending on whether the command line tool or the web console was used to create the instance. Tools are all up to date.

comment What are the steps needed to set up and use security for AWS command line tools?
I have IAM permissions, so can generate & upload certs, but just can't view that link.

Eric - That link does not appear to be reachable if you are using a user account created under the main AWS account.

comment What are the steps needed to set up and use security for AWS command line tools?
@MichaelHampton: The link to aws-portal.amazon.com/gp/aws/securityCredentials DOES NOT WORK if you are using a user created in IAM. So maybe there's some magic pixie dust there that addresses my problem, but I can't get to it, and frankly your condescending answer is not helpful.
