Hello Everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

In the last blog post, we have discussed boto3 clients.

In this blog post, we will discuss how to create a LAMP stack in AWS using Python Boto3. In this demo, we are going to install Apache webserver with PHP and MySQL support on your Amazon Linux instance (sometimes called a LAMP web server or LAMP stack). You can use this server to host a static website or deploy a dynamic PHP application that reads and writes information to a database. We will create a custom VPC, one public subnet and one private subnet, one internet gateway, custom route tables for the public and private subnets, custom security groups, Key Pair and one EC2 Amazon Linux 2 server with LAMP configuration using user data.

Prerequisites for this demo:

  • One EC2 AWS Linux 2 instance with boto3 installed and configured.

Demo:

Step 1: Create a file deploy_lamp.py to define your LAMP stack.

Step 2: Execute the deploy_lamp.py to create your LAMP stack.

Our LAMP stack created successfully.

Once the instance ‘Status Checks’ is completed, open the Webserver URL in your favorite browser.

Step 3: Create a file delete_lamp.py to delete your LAMP stack.

Step 4: Delete your LAMP stack

Note: We have used both Boto3 resources and clients in this demo. You can try to optimize the code if you want.

Hope your understanding in boto3 is clear now. You can try to interact with other services using boto3 by referring below Boto3 official documentation.
