Project Implementation

AWS gives you 12-month free tier access which includes Amazon EC2, Amazon S3 and Amazon DynamoDB with that you can easily set up your website.

There are two ways to host a dynamic website on AWS one is using EC2 to host a website and other is using Elastic Beanstalk service. With Elastic Computer Cloud you have to launch, install and configure the site. But with Elastic Beanstalk which is an app deployment service by AWS, you can easily deploy your website just by uploading your code written using PHP or other languages. Elastic Beanstalk automates the website or app deployment by functioning in the background.

We are going to use EC2 - Elastic Computer Cloud to create our dynamic website on AWS.

Following is the process to be followed to host a dynamic website:

  • Create the application server
  • Create the Database server
  • Deploy the website application
  • Elastic Load Balancing
  • Merge Domain name with your website

Launch EC2 instance by creating a virtual server to run your web application. After creating the instance it will appear in the dashboard you can connect to the instance using Java plugin or putty since Linux server does not have any GUI.

Now install the LAMP stack, which is a set of open-source software (the stack consists of (L) Linux operating system, (A) Apache HTTP server, (M) MySQL database management system and (P) PHP programming language) used to create web servers and applications.

To check that you have installed the webserver properly copy-paste the public DNS of your instance in the browser which will display “it works”.

Now upload your web pages to the www folder of the webserver using FileZilla client. Remove the index.html file from the www folder and upload your PHP, CSS and HTML files.

Go to the public DNS to see your site after uploading the files. Index.html file will show the index page of the site. Using the elastic IP map your domain name to the Elastic Compute Cloud instance which will bring customers to your website.
