Has anyone successfully installed Processwire on an Amazon EC2 instance/virtual server? Which configuration works; Amazon Linux or one of the other flavors? How do you get file permissions and the database working? Which lines in .htaccess cause problems on Amazon AWS? What are the pitfalls to watch out for? Why can't I get it working...? The first problem I run into is an error message that the installer doesn't have write access and that I should manually rename the 'site-myprofile' folder to 'site'. Attempt to chmod all the files and folders to 777 don't seem to have any effect on that and some files do get written fine. But I keep ending up with inaccessable pages and fatal server errors. I am not asking you to solve my problem. I am curious what other people's experiences are with this. Can it be done or am I wasting my time?
