comment Local IIS webpage address is IP:PORT - How can i have it set to something more human readable, like teehut.com, on my local network?
DNS handles the teehut.com -> 192.168.2.150 conversion. DNS doesn't touch ports at all.

comment Why does port 6379 need to be opened on the security group for elasticache?
ElastiCache has security groups because just like any other set of servers you might want to limit who has access to it. You might be running several apps in your AWS account and only want to let one app's servers access the cache. You might want to limit access just to a PHP tier and not let your database tier have access.

comment RDS slave (read replica) not replication
@FrontierPsycho You can promote a replica to master, but I don't think you can promote a replica to another replica's spot. We use DNS for this - our master is db.internal.example.com, our read-replica is read-db.internal.example.com, so switching replicas is just a Route53 record change.

comment Root domain to elb
@derpy The RFCs were written long, long before cloud hosts like Amazon became popular, hence the need for workarounds like non-standard ALIAS records. Route53, being an Amazon product, can hook into their back-end systems to find the real IP of an ELB in a way other systems can't do as easily, hence why it's easier to do this from within the AWS ecosystem.

comment Root domain to elb
"So Amazon doesn't let you point a base domain towards an elb." You've got that backwards. The RFCs don't let you do it. Amazon does let you do it, with Route53 and an ALIAS record.

comment Can I use an IAM role to grant my Heroku app access to my Amazon S3 bucket?
@MattDiPasquale That's a broken link, and my understanding of how Heroku's dynos work would prevent you from using roles with them. Feel free to reach out to Heroku support if you feel otherwise.

comment Setting up a custom subdomain on Tumblr using both A record and CNAME?
You only need one or the other. You've currently set both t.example.com and hello.example.com to point to Tumblr via different techniques. You only want to use one or the other.

comment Make Apache server only to be avaliable for personal use?
On home internet chances are pretty good it's not accessible to the internet. Your router'd be in front of it.

comment Security concerns with glusterfs?
@haimg I'd say if you're big enough to need Gluster you're big enough to figure out the security side of things on your own. Anyone doing multiple datacenters with replication between them should already have VPN/dedicated links well in hand.

comment Launch instances via Elastic Beanstalk without Elastic IP configured
@ed. I'm not enormously familiar with EB but it looks like from the docs you want to set aws:ec2:vpc:AssociatePublicIpAddress in your EB config (and that this is peculiar to single-instance EBs). Alternatively, ask AWS for an increase in your EIP limit - in my experience they'll happily grant it in this sort of situation.

comment Nginx + ssl not responding
@NicolasReynolds Note: the fairly lengthy TTL on the records (3 hours) means it may take a while to see the changes.
