1. Get the lastest eb AMI: First you'll need to start a fresh elastic beanstalk environment. You can simply deploy the sample application. Than follow the steps to 7. described in this guide: Using Custom AMIs You'll end up with a running EC2 instance with all the configuration you need to use it as an eb image.

2. Connect to your EC2 instance: Switch to the root user:

$ sudo -i

3. Customize the php.ini:

$ vi /etc/php.ini

I've added a pdf extension, set data.timezone and disabled short_open_tags. You can do whatever you need to do.

4. Customize phpapplication.rb: This is the deployment script. It will be executed every time you deploy a new application version. It is the Holy Grail for your symfony cli commands. You can use my script as a basis for your work:


I appreciate your feedback. Feed free to fork the repository and push your modifications. The current script is for Symfony 2.0.x. I bet you'll have to modify it, to make it work with Symfony 2.1.x (Composer)

5. Clean up your cli history:

$ rm -f ~/.bash_history; history -c;
$ exit;
$ rm -f ~/.bash_history; history -c;
$ exit;

6. Your custom AMI is ready.

Continue with step 7. from the AMI guide: Using Custom AMIs

7. Log Watching:

After step 10 of the Amazon guide you can connect to your new custom eb EC2 instance and watch what it going on:

$ tail -f /opt/elasticbeanstalk/var/log/hostmanager.log

That's what I've done.
