Joomla deployment in AWS

Post by stevesp » Fri Nov 08, 2019 3:22 pm

We've got an (overly!) complex deployment in AWS spread across 2 availability zones with load balancers etc. We've got a company willing to manage it for us [ redacted ] but I'm not sure of their Joomla credentials. There seems to be very little in terms of deployment guides for this kind of setup and it's not something that I am confident of managing myself (by contrast, Wordpress has multiple guides). I can't be the first to reach this point with Joomla - what would you suggest I do? I'm considering trying to rework the site in Wordpress.

It is not clear if you are talking about a migration of an existing website or a completely new setup. Your deployment is obviously complex and you must have reasons for that architecture, like a large customer base combined with a high volume of visits and commercial transactions.

A search in Bing for "deploy joomla in aws" produces at least half a dozen hits from companies who provide scripts and services for installing Joomla in AWS.

On the other hand, as long as one already has experience in networking, web security and Linux servers together with Joomla, AWS resources like S3 and EC2 are relatively easy to learn and deploy (no affiliation).

However, managing an AWS infrastructure with a combination of servers and load balancers, is a different kettle of fish, compared to managing just Joomla hosted on a single server. Therefore it might be necessary to engage specialist companies for each of the two areas, Joomla and the infrastructure - unless you want to take care of Joomla yourself.

You could post your requirements and contact details to the Professional Development Services forum at viewforum.php?f=177 so that interested parties can contact you.
