EC2 + Ubuntu 12.04 + LAMP 2 Server Setup checklist

October 03, 2012

My steps:

Install stuff

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo tasksel install lamp-server
sudo apt-get install subversion phpmyadmin php5-curl
  • Add Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf to somewhere in your Apache Config files to enable it
  • Use http://strongpasswordgenerator.com/ to generate passwords
  • Uncomment store-plaintext-passwords = no in /home/ubuntu/.subversion/servers so svn stops bugging you about it

Security

Backups

Monitoring

  • AWS – set up CloudWatch to watch Status and CPU usage
