comment What other ways can I load balance EC2 servers without using Elastic Load Balancing?
yes but I will need to add the IP address to my firewall settings, so how would I do that when the instances are started by autoscale.

As a follow up - do you know if it is possible to automtically assign an IP address to an instance when it is started by an autoscale policy?

yep you are right, simples when you think about it. this will mean reserving a number of IPs and adding to firewall and just paying for the IPs when they are not needed. thanks.

However I still had the same problem when adding the DNS name to the firewall settings. It appears that the way the firewall works is to look up the IP address of the DNS and store that in its settings. AWS elastic load balancers change their IP addresses over time so this is not a very good solution - might have to open up 3306 to the world ... !! or find another way to load balance across multiple EC2 instances and connect to remote MySQL server - though I would have to add each new IP to the firewall ... hmm

Thanks - it was the firewall rules they were set to allow only remote access from a single (elastic) IP address. best

Hi thanks for your answer. In the privileges table in mysql I have set the host field for the user that my EC2 instance scripts use to % which I think means should allow any IP address to connect. Since ELB does not use an IP address I cannot add an IP address as a host. Should % not allow it to connect anyway? I will look at firewall rules.

Yes that's right the EC2 instances are behind the load balancer, I have hardcoded the database connection details in a separate PHP script on the EC2 instances.

Well I rebuilt the server and this seems to have solved my problem, the server no longer crashes and all 130 photos uploaded ok. I still have the old configuration as a machine image on Amazon so can always start it up again and investigate further in the future, unfortunately I am pushed for time to get a working system developed.
