How to Setup Ec2 Instance

Post by techguy » Wed May 24, 2017 9:08 am

Let's learn today to setup EC2 Instance

We will start with register /login at AWS Console as Root User.

Step 1: Set up and log into your AWS account

Log into the AWS Management Console and set up your root account.
Step 2: Launch an Amazon EC2 instance

In the Amazon EC2 Dashboard, choose "Launch Instance" to create and configure your virtual machine.
Step 3: Configure your instance

In this wizard, you have the option to configure your instance features. Below are some guidelines on setting up your first instance.
  • Choose an Amazon Machine Image (AMI): In step 1 of the wizard, we recommend the Amazon Linux AMI (free-tier eligible).
    Choose an instance type: In step 2 of the wizard, we recommend the t2.micro (free-tier eligible).
    Security group: In step 6, you have the option to configure your virtual firewall.
    Launch instance: In step 7, review your instance configuration and choose "Launch".
    Create a key pair: Select "Create a new key pair" and assign a name. The key pair file (.pem) will download automatically - save this in a safe place as we will later use this file to log in to the instance. Finally, choose "Launch Instances" to complete the set up.
Note: It may take a few minutes to initialize your instance.
Step 4: Connect to your instance

After you launch your instance, you can connect to it and use it the way that you'd use a computer sitting in front of you. To connect from the console, follow the steps below:

Select the EC2 instance you created and choose "Connect".
Select "A Java SSH client directly from my browser". Ensure Java is installed and enabled.
Enter the Private key path (example: C:\KeyPairs\my-key-pair.pem).
Choose "Launch SSH Client".

Note: You can also connect via SSH or PuTTY, click here to learn more.
Step 5: Terminate instances

Amazon EC2 is free to start (learn more), but you should terminate your instances to prevent additional charges. The EC2 instance and the data associated will be deleted.

Select the EC2 instance, choose "Actions", select "Instance State", and "Terminate".
