Get started with AWS EB
STATUS: This is still work in progress
AWS Elastic Beanstalk let’s you deploy PHP applications in a kick. No need for installing servers with web servers etc. This is a short summary of how I got started deploying from Git into Beanstalk. I’m running Mac OSX but it will be pretty much the same on any Linux flavour.
You need to sign up for a Amazon account if you don’t already have one.
See the AWS documentation for more details:
wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/elasticbeanstalk/cli/AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0.zip unzip -d ~/local/ AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0.zip cd ~/local/AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0 nano credentials AWSAccessKeyId=Write your AWS access ID AWSSecretKey=Write your AWS secret key chmod 600 credentials nano ~/.bash_profile ... export AWS_CREDENTIAL_FILE=~/local/AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0/credentials export ELASTICBEANSTALK_URL=https://elasticbeanstalk.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com export PATH=$PATH:~/local/AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0/eb/macosx/python2.7
Initialize a git repository for Elastic Beanstalk and deploy a first version:
# Copy AWSDevTools-RepositorySetup.sh into the git repository (Part of AWS-ElasticBeanstalk-CLI-2.0.zip downloaded above) sudo ./AWSDevTools-RepositorySetup.sh sudo git aws.config sudo git aws.push </pre> Probably not needed:sudo eb init sudo eb status sudo eb startNotes ---- * It seams as though the credentials file not is used. Maybe this can be skipped?
