Creating Virtual Private Cloud on AWS an enabling Flow logs - Hands-on

Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed.

I'm currently preparing AWS Certified Solution Architect - Associate certificate.
The following gist is intended to anyone looking to create a VPC and see it's associated logs on AWS.
We're going to be using Amazon VPC as well as an Amazon Flow Logs.
I performed this setup on my Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.
To check your OS version, execute $ lsb_release -a in your Terminal.


None. Just log into your AWS management console,
You'll need to perform several tasks in your CLI regarding SSH keygen, so make sure you check the following prerequisites.


First, make sure Oracle jdk is installed. I recommend java 1.8.0
To uninstall effectively your current jdk, perform this:
$ sudo apt-get remove openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
$ sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove openjdk*

To install java 1.8.0, open Terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and run the command:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java // adds PPA repository
$ sudo apt-get update // updates package list
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk // installs openjdk

$ javmyDataBaseServermyDataBaseServerac -version // shows your new java version
