    Good morning cPanel users,

    I have just deployed my personal and experimental web hosting company/environment on Amazon Web Services by following George Böhnisch's 11th June 2013 3-part guide entitled "How I Built a cPanel Hosting Environment on Amazon AWS".

    As at 29 December 2017, there were many significant changes to Amazon VPC and EC2 and cPanel and WHM. Although George Böhnisch's guide is very outdated by 4 years, I have managed to deploy 2 DNS servers and a virtual web server using CentOS 7 x86-64 AMI and cPanel 11.68, just by following his guide.

    My first and foremost question is: Are there any latest and updated guides on building a cPanel hosting environment on Amazon AWS?

    My 2nd question is: How do I backup an AMI instance to a file on my computer? This is critical as I need to backup my cPanel installations periodically.

    Thank you very much.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    The updated documentation is available at:

    Amazon AWS Guide - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
    Create an Amazon AWS Account - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation
    Amazon AWS Instance Management - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    This is something that you'd handle through the Amazon AMS management as opposed to cPanel & WHM. You may find the following resources helpful:

    Launching a Linux Instance from a Backup - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
    Amazon EC2 EBS backup: AMI vs Snapshot

    If you are interested in backup options offered through cPanel & WHM, we document those at:

    Backup Configuration - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
