The task here is to setup an Amazon EC2 instance and run the Ghost blogging application. Basically, I wanted to create this blog, on Amazon EC2 and use my GoDaddy domain name. This will be a two part blog where the first part will be setting up EC2 while the second part will be Amazon Route53 setup using GoDaddy as the registrar. I thought this was going to be an easy setup, however, I thought wrong. The were a few gotchas that really held me up, so I hope this document helps anyone having issues setting up Ghost blogger on EC2. This step by step process will be a document for anyone having this issue or plans to do the same configuration as I.
