AMI Manifest: sun-osol-2008-11/WordPress_2008.11_32_1.0.img.manifest.xml
License: Public

Description:

This 32 bit AMI is based on OpenSolaris 2008.11 AMP Stack AMI. Following components are
included in the AMI.

  • MySQL 5.0
  • PHP 5.2 (along with extensions like APC, DTrace, Suhosin, Memcache) runtime
  • phpMyAdmin for administering MySQL database

Security Recommendations:

  • Wordpress Installation/configuration pages can be accessible using public DNS address associated with the instance. It is recommended to configure Amazon EC2 firewall on port '80' to limit inbound connections.
  • After the installation change the permission on “/var/wordpress/wp-config.php” file to 600 .
    This file should not be accessible to group or world.


Configuration:

  • WordPress (bundled within this AMI in pre-configured state) is available under location /var/wordpress
  • WordPress specific configuration for Apache Web Server is available within /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/wordpress.conf
  • Users can launch and configure WordPress by accessing http://<DNS name associated with the instance> in their browser
  • Apache and MySQL services are pre-configured to start on boot
  • If you would like to use phpMyAdmin, you will need to do the following:

                  # cp /etc/apache2/2.2/samples-conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/

                  # svcadm restart http:apache22

  • DTrace probes are available within Apache and PHP runtime. Sample DTrace scripts are available under /opt/DTT/
