From the Route 53 admin page when adding a TXT record set: A text record. Enter multiple values on separate lines. Enclose text in quotation marks. Example: "Sample Text Entries" "Enclose entries in quotation marks"

AMI's can't be run directly, but they can be converted to run on VirtualBox. A Google search: How to move a Virtual Machine From EC2 to VirtualBox or KVM or step-by-step with more detail: Converting an EC2 AMI to a VirtualBox .vdi

No, listening sockets on localhost (127.0.0.1 or ::1 on IPv6-enabled systems) are only accessible from the very same system they were created on. To configure a program to listen on all interfaces, you'd usually use 0.0.0.0 or ::. According to a quick Google search this should also be valid for node.js.

The purge-vault from this project works nicely: https://github.com/vsespb/mt-aws-glacier Install, then run these commands (replace vault-name with the name of your vault): mtglacier retrieve-inventory --config glacier.cfg --vault vault-name wait for about 2 hours, and then mtglacier download-inventory --config glacier.cfg --vault vault-name ...

It's called ephemeral/instance storage (see http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/). Basically, it's temporary storage space which is cleared on instance stop/termination. Suitable for temporary storage.

It looks like Amazon don't allow you to choose a specific MAC address but instead allocate you one on machine creation. Based on https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?messageID=107448&

Red Hat pricing details are here http://aws.amazon.com/rhel/ and Amazon Linux is here: http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/; as you say, RHEL implies additional cost, whilst Amazon Linux involves 'no additional charge' beyond the charges for running instances and related services. Amazon Linux, like CentOS, is based on RHEL -- it is fundamentally a ...

Nope, joining to a new network won't give you a new address. Installing a new device, won't change the existing MAC address on your other card. It'll, it is a single 'emulated' network device. The only thing that can more likely to change your address is a driver update which happened to me many times during the past. When I have an older card, and the ...

Usually, the price you pay for the "Enterprise" versions (RHEL, SLES) isn't for a bonus in performance, but for a bonus in service. For example, a certain to-remain-unnamed provider of "enterprise" databases won't offer you any support unless you are running the database on a certified Linux (i.e., SLES, RHEL). If you don't have support contracts to worry ...

It wasn't clear from your question if you have already tried the git aws.push option. You could refer a blog post on AWSBlog for deploying Rack based applications to AWS Elastic Beanstalk. To summarize the same, you can do it in the following easy steps: eb init eb start git aws.push This, of course, requires you to download AWS Elastic Beanstalk command ...

You want to run it something like this: puttygen yourKey.pem -o yourKey.ppk -O private Flags: -o Tells it where to write out the converted putty private key -O private Tells it that you want a putty private key (as opposed to the other output formats it can produce).

zypper is the suse package manager. Ubuntu uses apt (in whatever flavor you choose. aptitude, apt-get, etc.). You might be able to find a version of zypper for Ubuntu but I wouldn't bet on it... nor would I suggest you even bother trying. Just use one of the apt family of tools. As an aside that error isn't directly related to the zypper problem and is ...

If your site is running 24x7 you should not use a on demand instance, on demand instances are for temporary jobs that you need a machine for (like load balancing for extra traffic). What you want is a heavy utilization reserved instance. You pre-pay a one time upfront fee to get a discounted hourly rate on the instance over the lifespan on the contract. ...

You can use a freeware product like CloudBerry Explorer http://www.cloudberrylab.com/free Note, Glacier data doesn't become available immediately. you need to wait 24 hours for the global inventory to occur on the Amazon side, then you should click Get Inventory button and wait another 5 hours to get the inventory for your account. Thanks

I've used arq for years and love it. It is not timemachine (bummer) but does do automatic backups to either Amazon's S3 or Glacier.

SFTP is not the same as FTPS. FTPS is FTP using SSL. SFTP is secure file transfer protocol (over SSH). (Mac OS X's FTP/FTPS support in Finder is pretty pathetic anyways.) Mac OS X can not natively mount SFTP shares. There is a way to do it using MacFUSE. It's rather difficult to set up and there's not a reliable non-commercial GUI application to manage ...

You need to copy your public SSH key to the server. Done by using pscp.exe and the command (in command prompt): "c:\Program Files\Putty\pscp.exe" id_rsa.pub ubuntu@ec2-xx-xx-xxx-xx.compute-1.amazonaws.com:.ssh/authorized_keys Where first part is the path to pscp.exe 2nd part is my public part of my SSH key and 3rd part is ...

Ok, not sure what OS this is using, but Amazon have just announced AWS Storage Gateway which does something simular to what i am thinking above... it creates a Virtual Machine on your network, which creates iSCSI volumes. it uses local storage for a "cache" it writes data back to S3 for snapshots and for backup... Interesting idea, not free though. but ...

Update The smallest provisioned throughput one can request has meanwhile been reduced to 1w/1r capacity units, see Amazon DynamoDB - Reduced Minimum Throughput for details, which specifically addresses the problem at hand: The AWS Free Usage Tier allows you to consume up to 100 MB of DynamoDB storage, 5 read capacity units, and 5 write capacity units ...

The elastic ip is not re associated with the resurrected instance and yes amazon charges a small fee while the ip is not attached to the instance.

In that kind of situation I think you should be able to use a second instance to fix the problem: Detach the EBS disk containing the broken system Create another EC2 instance Attach & mount the disk to the new instance Fix the permissions Umount, detach & reattach to the original instance

Bare keys do not have "key IDs". They're just series of numbers. If the key belongs to an X.509 certificate, then the certificate's fingerprint (a SHA-1 hash of the DER-encoded cert) will be used for identification: openssl x509 -outform der | openssl sha1, or openssl x509 -noout -fingerprint. Otherwise (if it's just a bare public/private keypair), the ...

I don't know about EC2/EBS but your title mentions Ubuntu. The linked article mentions yum and RPM which does NOT sound like Ubuntu (or even Debian-derived). However, in Ubuntu the stuff is below /usr/lib/postgresql/<version>.

Unfortunately you cannot. You can only run specific Windows Server images (2003, 2008, 2012) on Amazon EC2. You can however grow your own Linux versions and run those. I believe the Windows non-server OS limitation is due to licensing agreements with Microsoft.

Make sure the A-record of your DNS is pointing to the public-facing IP address of your server. Generally you'll get three columns: Host Name <- How users will get to your site (@, www, subdomain, etc) Address <- where the record should point (generally the IP address of the server) Record Type <- Typically this will be an A record Using the @ ...

A running process (or processes) has a file (or files) open that have been deleted. The space occupied by those file(s) appears to df but doesn't appear to du. You can use the lsof command to find which processes have which files open — or you can simply reboot, and the space occupied by the deleted files will be reclaimed. The du command only shows the ...

This happens when the hashkey or rangekey in the dynamo table don't have corresponding columns in the redshift table. Make sure they exactly match in name and have suitable types.

You're comparing apples with pears. A dedicated server is a dedicated server, it's all yours and it has definite limits on it's capacity. A cloud based host is a cloud based host, and they are almost certainly using virtualization to a large extent, which does not only mean power savings and less physical hardware, but also that the actual hardware available ...
