CityGrid PHP Amazon EC2 AMI for Rapid Local Web App Development

I have updated our PHP Amazon AMI after using it at a hackathon last week.  If you haven’t checked out our PHP AMI yet, it is a Fedora Linux, Apache and PHP Amazon Machine Image (AMI) we created for building local web apps around the CityGrid APIs.

I’ve organized all php code libraries, samples, prototypes and starter kits on a Linux server, and made a public Amazon EC2 AMI with it.

Currently I have the following projects and code libraries on the AMI:

  • Twitter Bootstrap - The open source UI library created by Twitter.
  • Local Directory - A basic local business directory that uses CityGrid APIs.
  • PHP Class and Samples - A PHP class for CityGrid places and advertising APIs with usage samples.
  • Twilio PHP Library - Official PHP Twilio REST API and TwiML library

The Amazon Machine Image is - ami-d3f928ba and is available to the public.

The server is pre-configured with the following:

  • Linux (Fedora)
  • Web Server (Apache)
  • FTP (VSFTP)
  • MysQL

The root user is - ec2-user

The FTP user is:

  • u: hyp3r
  • p: l0cal

This AMI is a work in progress, I will update the image as I can make time. If you have questions you can reach me @kinlane or @citygridapiteam.
