I need help to setup a test environment under Nginx that is able to target a specific EC2 instance. I am using Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer and auto scaling to manage my EC2 production instances.
What I need now is to be able to launch a new EC2 instance based on the production image/AMI and then test new software, configurations, etc. before upgrading the production servers. Ideally, I'd like to be able to go to test.mysite.com and access that specific new EC2 instance.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do that? Also, is it possible to only give my IP access to the test server?
Update: I'm also using Route 53 if that makes a difference
