Thanks @MattHouser, it worked!! See also stackoverflow.com/a/6379272/841830 for more details on how to do that.

comment Setup ubuntu server to send mail()
@Panique I don't have the quotes on my installations. The manual just says you "can" use quotes, not that you must. However they should do no harm, and maybe it matters on some PHP versions, so I just updated the answer to include them. Thanks.

comment How to move a Windows instance to a different EC2 data centre?
Thanks for the idea. No, I've not tried, but I'd be delighted to hear from someone who has done it with Windows and, say, blogged about it. Fortunately the need to setup Windows machines doesn't come round that often for me, so it might be a few months before I personally get chance to try it.

Thanks, that does look useful for copying linux images to another region. (See my answer regarding Windows: Amazon explicitly say you cannot launch a copied AMI.)

This open source project appears to have scripts to move snapshots between regions, and even Windows AMIs. rubyforge.org/projects/cloudyscripts (I'm just posting this as a comment, as I've not personally tried it, and from my shallow look it seems a bit hacky/fragile.)

comment s3cmd fails too many times
I followed instructions at s3tools.org/repositories#note-deb but it didn't help. (However s3cmd --version tells me 1.0.0, not 1.0.1, so that minor version number might be important; this is on ubuntu 11.04)

comment s3cmd fails too many times
Thanks. I had same problem. Clock looked right, and I could upload small files, so I don't think it was the other suggestions. However aws worked perfectly.
