comment How to run a script within an Amazon EC2 when the instance starts for the first time?
Stick it in rc.local as you're doing, but have the script delete itself when it finishes running.

comment What is reverse DNS?
@SturdyErde If your ISP makes the appropriate delegations to your own name servers then you can manage the reverse zone yourself. If they can't or won't, then you'll have to get them to make changes for you. It's entirely dependent on your ISP's policies and level of technical competence.

comment How to Increase the Size of an XFS File System?
You're going to have problems. First, you can't edit a mounted partition, so you'll need to use another AWS instance to edit the partition. And second, parted doesn't support xfs. If you're very very careful you might be able to delete both partitions and then create a new one starting at the same sector. If you're not very very careful, you'll lose all your data.

No, making the directories readable by nobody doesn't mean that you've made the files in the directories readable.

comment My server cant resolve domains?
Can you try that again, copying and pasting from a command line session and not from some GUI or web interface. It's impossible to tell what's in the file and what isn't. And use the markup for code to ensure it's formatted properly here.

comment How Amazon VPC manages IPs?
@AdamMatan If you just want one private IP address for an instance, assign it when you create the instance, and Amazon will take care of creating an appropriate ENI for you. Or don't even do that and let Amazon assign the IP address as well, which is usually all that you need.

comment How Amazon VPC manages IPs?
@AdamMatan I'm talking about private addresses in this answer -- for public addresses you assign an Elastic IP address, and you'll never get a consecutive range of addresses.

@Vitaly You can't reserve a range, I'm afraid. The best you can do is hold back a whole subnet and use that subnet for your future requirement.

comment Adding EBS volume to Amazon EC2 server. Do I need to?
I'm afraid that's very specific to your exact server setup -- what filesystem do you use, what applications do you run, where do they store their data, and so on. If you're not a systems administrator yourself, you'll need to find one.
