A Meetup for Memphis Software Developers

21. WordPress up and running using Amazon Web Services

August 04, 2020

Getting a WordPress site up and running using Amazon Web Services from scratch.

Presenter: Dennis Kennetz Hi all, my name is Dennis Kennetz and I am a local memphian who works as a Software Development Engineer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I studied Chemistry in college and started to learn to write code as a means to solve problems. I found out that I loved programming and ended up teaching myself python and bash, and now I am fortunate enough to use them both for a living! Places you can find me:

  • setting up an aws account
  • starting an instance + generating a key pair
  • buying a domain name
  • associating the domain name to your aws instance elastic ip address
  • limiting access to the website to your ip address (security group) during development
  • logging into the server using putty on windows (can have a slide or something about how to do it on a mac, but I don’t have a mac).
  • finding your login creds in the home directory of your server.
  • accessing the website as an admin!

This meetup is free and open to anyone willing to attend This is an online event. RSVP for link.
