In this screencast we are going to start from the very beginning and create our own EC2 cloud hosted Drupal installation. This will allow us to have full control of our Linux server and Drupal installation. We will walk through the process of setting up an Amazon EC2 instance, download and install Apache2, MySQL, PHP5, and phpmyadmin. Using these tools, we can create a Drupal database and host a Drupal website. Finally, we will download and install Drupal to our web server, create a Drupal database, configure the Apache site directory and install our Drupal website. At the end of the screencast we will have a running server and working Drupal website.
