To deploy Phalcon on AWS, you can follow these steps:
- Launch an EC2 instance:
Login to your AWS account and go to the EC2 service.
Click on "Launch Instance" and choose an instance type suitable for your needs.
Follow the steps to configure the instance, including selecting an appropriate Amazon Machine Image (AMI), instance size, and security settings.
- Set up the instance:
Connect to the instance using SSH or AWS Systems Manager Session Manager.
Install required dependencies like PHP, Apache/Nginx, and MySQL/MariaDB on the instance.
Configure the necessary firewall rules to allow incoming traffic on the required ports (e.g., HTTP/HTTPS).
- Install Phalcon:
Add Phalcon's repository to your server's package manager.
Install the Phalcon PHP extension using the package manager.
Enable the extension in your PHP configuration file by adding extension=phalcon.so or extension=phalcon.dll depending on your operating system.
- Configure your webserver:
For Apache: Modify the Apache virtual host configuration file (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf) to include Phalcon's settings. You can refer to Phalcon's official documentation on how to configure Apache.
For Nginx: Modify the Nginx configuration file (/etc/nginx/nginx.conf) to include Phalcon's settings. Again, you can refer to Phalcon's official documentation for Nginx configuration.
- Deploy your Phalcon application:
Copy your Phalcon application files to the document root directory of your webserver (e.g., /var/www/html).
Set the appropriate permissions for the files and directories so that they can be accessed by the webserver.
Update the database configuration in your Phalcon application to connect to your MySQL/MariaDB instance.
- Test your deployment:
Start/restart the webserver to apply the configuration changes.
Access your application's URL in a web browser to verify that Phalcon is running correctly.
Note: The above steps provide a general guideline for deploying Phalcon on AWS, but the exact steps may vary depending on your specific requirements and the operating system you are using on your EC2 instance. It's always recommended to refer to Phalcon's official documentation for more detailed and up-to-date instructions.
