Apache Web Server
Apache HTTP server has been running millions of websites of all varieties and it is one of the most popular open source applications also. The Kurian AMI bakes the latest version of Apache HTTP server software onto the target Linux distribution updated with latest OS patches. A node spun out of this AMI will be ready to be added to a cluster or further configuration immediately.
The AMI has PHP and supporting modules also installed including MySQL client modules. So, the PHP applications can connect remotely to MySQL compatible databases, including AWS RDS Aurora and MariaDB. If a database is needed locally, the LAMP stack AMI by Kurian is recommended instead of this AMI product. Also, the AMI is configured for Ansible to work with the nodes spun up from it.
- Latest Apache HTTP Server with support for PHP.
- AMI generated with latest OS patches and Ansible support.
- Support to connect to remote MySQL databases.
How It Works
The AMI is preinstalled with Apache and PHP with supporting modules especially for connecting to remote databases. Spin up the node and deploy web sites or PHP applications to the Apache document root, and they would work with additional configuration.
Verify the availability of Apache and PHP
- After the EC2 node spun up from this node is up and running, access http://EC2-NODE-IP/index.php and check if phpinfo can be viewed on the browser.
- Deploy the application or website to the document root. On most of the Linux distributions that is
/var/www/htmland on SUSE versions of Linux it is
/srv/www/htdocs. If the application needs to be deployed as part of provisioning the node, use user data option of EC2 that is also supported by Terraform.
