Configuring Apache and Installing WordPress On Linux EC2

Posted on December 15, 2011 by Anthony James Founder/CEOAnthony James Founder/CEO

If you’ve followed our Amazon Web Services screencasts then you are ready to install WordPress on your Linux server. First, we need to configure Apache2 to point to the correct root directory, download wget, check permissions on the server, create our MySQL databases, and finally install and run the WordPress configuration file. This screencast will help you solve issues you might come across along the way.

Hi Anthony,
You made a great effort to create this wonderful new-bie friendly video. But, I wish I could watch it in a better resolution. At 360p, it is bit difficult to see what you write on the terminal. Overall, a great work indeed.

Going to make all the future ones in HD. Had some troubles with my original screencasting software.

These videos are awesome! Hopefully in future ones, you can do a more HD video, some of the code is hard to read.
Quick Question: When I try to remove the /Wordpress from the URL by adding /Wordpress to 000-default, the website goes weird looking and links don’t when you click on them. Any ideas?

I have installed WordPress and have now installed BuddyPress on that installation. Unfortunately I am getting 404 errors on every page and the resolution I have found is to change to pretty permalinks, however with AWS I found that the mod_rewrite file needs to be enabled on the server. I am unfamiliar with how to do this and have been unable to find any information on it. There may be another way to eliminate the 404 errors on BuddyPress but I have not found anything other than the above information.
Thoughts?

Hey Jaffe, did you ever solve your problem. When I navigate to my ip address I get a tomcat server page. Do I need to modify something so that I can get my blog to load instead of that page? I am not sure if I have apache setup right but I am getting a 404 everytime I try to navigate anything but the homepage which is a tomcat server page. Please help.
