In this learning activity, we will implement a LAMP stack on a single Lightsail instance and then migrate it to a scalable full-tier architecture.

The goal of the learning activity is to gain experience with:

  • Creating a LAMP Lightsail instance
  • Creating a Lightsail managed database instance using MySQL
  • Reconfiguring a LAMP application to use the Lightsail managed database
  • Cloning a front-end application server
  • Scaling an application front end
  • Adding a load balancer to distribute incoming load
What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
