I’m known to go through a lot of changes and always rebuild servers and try new methods of deployment. I’m always trying something new on one of my RaspberryPi’s or BeagleBone Black’s and constantly create more work for myself lol… I’m always looking to make something better!
Well this morning I was doing some quick looking and discovered that my Amazon AWS server that runs my website has been up since Nov 26, 2013! That has to be a record for me as so length of time without changing something.. I actually discovered it because I’m looking at moving from Amazon AWS to DigitalOcean. I thought I’d give a quick overview of how I have my servers that host my WordPress, ExpressionEngine & CodeIgniter instances.
Server: I currently have a t2.small server running at Amazon AWS, It’s running built ubuntu-precise-12.04-amd64-server-20131003
Control Panel : I use ServerPilot as a control panel to manage the deployment of applications on the AWS Server. I cannot speak highly enough of this service and recommend it to anyone that does any web development.
DNS Managment: I use CloudFlare to manage the DNS of all my Domains. Simple to use and full of fantastic features.
