EC2  -  Windows Environment

Question asked by bgara on Aug 16, 2010
Hi,

I am new to Alfresco. I am not able to access http://publicdns:8080/alfresco even after changing the Localhost in Global Properties.

Steps I followed:

1. Create a EC2 Windows environment small.
2. Remote desktop into the Instance.
3. Download the community edition 3.3
4. Installed Alfresco.
5. Went to C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco-global.properties replaced ${localhost} with publicdns name
6. Open the 8080 port using following the instructions from http://maximumpcguides.com/windows-7/open-a-port-in-windows-7s-firewall/
7. Started "Alfresco Server".
8. On EC2 instance I am able to open the alfresco explorer http://localhost:8080/alfresco.

When I am trying to open http://publicdns:8080/alfresco from remote box I am getting Page not found.

I didn't used Ubuntu image because I am not familiar with Ubuntu and the image is on Medium CPU. EC2 small will cost me half of EC2 medium CPU instance. Since I am totally new I prefer using small ec2 instance.

Please help me what I have to do.

Thank you
