Project Description

Hi, Interested in doing this for me? Shouldn't take you very long, Happy to pay you whatever you think its worth as long as it is done simply and right and I can easily replicate and manage it. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Adam

Need an expert at Amazon EC2/Apache/domain management who can setup EC2 so that I can securely host the proprietary media (mp3, mp4) files in my current buckets on S3. I would like sub-domains to point to each folder (or bucket) where I could easily assign users and passwords to each new subdomain that I create from time to time. From htaccess files in each subdomain, I should be able add icons, a favicon and customize the directory listing. I currently have this system setup on Godaddy shared hosting, but they want me to move to dedicated hosting as I am not a "traditional website", so I am moving to Amazon to redo this.

As part of this consulting contract, and prior to commencement of the actual programming, I will want you to walk me through this process point by point so that I can learn how to do it and understand exactly how you will do it, (i.e. install AMI xyz version from community, update linux/ubuntu, setup private keys, ssh, mount/fuse s3 buckets, create elastic IP, DNS/Cname pointing, create virtualhost httpconf, etc - I will want see and understand the scripts so I can learn also.) I am not a coder, but I generally understand the scope from help docs available online and I would like to learn more.

This instance (AMI) will need to be permanent. Please see example of screenshots. I created parts of htaccess files myself via trial and error from Apache documentation; previously, the sub-domain and password management was done by me via Godaddy's GUI (C-Panel?), but EC2 is not so easy, and I am not a coder.

Please be an expert in Apache / domain management on AWS, EC2, etc. LAMP expertise is preferred, since if you can program in LAMP, this will be very easy for you.

Price is negotiable. I would prefer both a fixed and hourly rate for modifications and support, if they are ever required, which they should not be. I will want to set a max number of hours for this initial project, or a fixed price.
