This 32 bit AMI is based on OpenSolaris 2008.11 AMP Stack AMI. Following components are included in the AMI.
- Drupal 6.10 (pre-configured state)
- Apache 2.2
- MySQL 5.0
- PHP 5.2 (along with extensions like APC, DTrace, Suhosin, Memcache) runtime
- phpmyadmin for administering mysql database.
Drupal Installation/configuration pages can be accessible using public DNS address associated with the instance. It is recommended to configure ec2 firewall on port '80' to limit inbound connections.
- Drupal (bundled within this AMI in pre-configured state) is available under location /var/drupal-6.10
- Drupal specific configuration for Apache Web Server is available within /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/drupal.conf.
- Users can launch and configure Drupal by accessing http://<DNS name associated with the instance> in their browser.
- Apache and mysql services are pre-configured to start on boot.
- If you would like to use phpMyAdmin, you will need to do the following:
# cp /etc/apache2/2.2/samples-conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/
# svcadm restart http:apache22
- Drupal recommends having a database protected with a valid user name and password to be created on the system before configuring Drupal. Hence, users are advised to either use 'ssh' to login to your AMI or phpMyAdmin to create such database before proceeding to configuring Drupal.
- DTrace probes are available within Apache and PHP runtime. Sample Dtrace scripts are available under /opt/DTT/
