Setup 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-add your.pem

SSH to your instance

ssh ubuntu@XX-XXX-XXX-XXXX.compute-1.amazonaws.com

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.
