Need help in FTP access in Amazon EC2

#1 Post by susant123 » 2013-05-30 12:58

I am trying with Amazon EC2 trial account, but its only few days and I have already started sweating. Somehow I managed to install wordpress, but now not able to upload data through FileZilla. Any help will be appreciated

I don't know, does that account support FTP or SFTP? I can't find information about that in their FAQ.

Thanks for the quick reply. In fact I am using exemplary hoster as my current host and I can use FileZilla to upload file like a charm. I am not that good at Unix/Linux environment. and in Amazon EC2 which is free for 1 year, there is no option like cpanel as in exemplary hoster. Its confusing to get something done.

I got a pem file from them which seems to work with filezilla. I am in trouble as I lost the first file I downloaded and I created a second one and now unable to connect to my account using FileZilla there after. Might be I can delete the current instance and try with a new one as the last solution :( (any how its a trial account, but definitely cloud hosting without cpanel is a pain)

Any how, thank you for your helping hand.
Regards,
Susant

I do not know if they even offer access vie FTP/SFTP. If they don't, FileZilla is out of the question. :?
