How to Install CKAN 2.0 from source on Ubuntu 12.04 on EC2
Create Your Instance
Note: To use the default Amazon EC2 Public DNS, replace “[yoursite.com]” with anything you like.
Launch a new EC2 instance with Ubuntu 12.04.
Create a new security group with 0.0.0.0 permissions on ports 22, 80, and 5000.
Download the resulting key.pem file to your local machine.
Connect to Your Instance
cd /directory/with/your.pem chmod 0600 "your.pem"
Add your key so you don't have to type it in each time:
SSH to your instance
If you don't want to add your key, use the following to connect to your instance:
ssh -i your.pem ubuntu@XX-XXX-XXX-XXXX.compute-1.amazonaws.com
Now follow the instructions on the ckan docs docs.ckan.org/en/latest/maintaining/installing/index.html to install CKAN on your EC2 machine.
