In this learning activity, we will use Amazon Lightsail to create a simple Wordpress blog.

The goal of this activity is to gain experience with:

  • Creating a Lightsail instance with pre-installed applications
  • Connecting to instances using the web console or local SSH client
  • Creating and attaching static IP addresses to instances
  • Diagnosing and updating network restrictions that apply to instances

These objectives will help us build a foundation for more advanced Lightsail use.

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.
