I'm Gideon Israel Dsouza. Check out my CV on Careers. (gidisrael-at-gmail-com)

I've been teaching myself programming since I was about 11.

I have the odd need to know how everything works. I own Linux, OSX and Windows and play with C#, Perl, Python, RaspberryPi's and Arduino. Check out my CPAN modules and my latest side project : http://perlmonksflair.com/

I will usually edit your question or answer if it's a huge block of unstructured text :)

comment attempt to change ec2 instance type fails instance status check
I tried with the same security group and then created a new security group and tried again. No luck. After it goes from pending to running, it loading.. in the status checks column and then after a long time says 1/2 checks failed. On the bottom of the dashboard I see Status Checks => Instance Status Checks And it says reachability problem, try rebooting .. (which I did)

Should I just bunk this setup and try the one from here => Putting a config in sites-enabled. It's written for debian but I'm on amazon ec2 RHEL.

where is the extra { ? I just moved include into the http { } block, which also has it's own server {} block. If I put the include inside the http block it gives me : unexpected } and removing it gives me a success :S
