This guide is split in 3 parts:
- part 1: Register the product on AWS
- part 2: Do some configuration magics from AWS
- part 3: Access the software
Step1: Register to our product
From the AWS marketplace, subscribe to our product from our vendor page:
At this stage, the status should show pending for about 2 minutes after which you see this:
Step2: AWS Configuration
Step3: Access the software
You now have 2 options:
OPTION1: you want to use your own domain name. In that scenario, create either a CNAME or A record that points to the machine. Once this is done, access the application via your domain name using HTTP.
OPTION2: you don’t care about the domain name for now. In that scenario, access the machine via HTTP. In my scenario, the URL is: http://22.214.171.124
This will setup SSL certificate so you can access your application via HTTPS. After a few seconds, you will be great by Filestash:
Tips: if you don’t use your own domain name but the IP address or the amazonaws.com domain, Filestash will generate self signed certificate meaning users will be asked to follow through a scary prompt to access the application. That prompt won’t be there if you use your own domain name.
