Easy configuration but..

You can be teaching a MOOC in just minutes but.. Unless you are a skilled person with all this SUDO commands it is better to stick with the humble Moodle, I can install and customize a Moodle instalation in just 4 or 5 minutes, Open EdX is absolutely good and nice looking but is like that girl that just smiles at you and you feel that she is in love with you just to see her minutes later going with that ugly guy in his Ferrari.

But if you do not mind waiting and having lots of patience, she may come back to you.. hopefully


Terrible setup time

It's been 6 days since I signed up for this service, and Amazon still can't get it up and running. Their support is by far the worst I've ever encountered. Stay away!

Worked perfectly!

Very easy to set up, provided you follow the instructions! Note that the password to log into the system is randomly generated when the EC2 box is provisioned. Further instructions are on Usage Instructions tab in the EC2 management console, with further detailed instructions here:

Everything seems to be ok, but I cannot retrieve the password from the instance log (i tried "bitnami", "user", "Bitnami")

Any suggestions?

The Usage instructions are very poor, actually without instrucitons

The instance is running, I enter the public DNS/edx-studio provided by Amazon into the browser to Open edX application administrator panel, but it never lands.

The Usage instructions for birch-3 on Ubuntu 14.04.1, Open edX powered by Bitnami (HVM) are very poor
