Deployment Steps

The procedure for deploying a Magento cluster on AWS consists of the following steps. For detailed instructions, follow the links for each step.

  • Step 1. Prepare an AWS account

    Sign up for an AWS account, choosing a region, creating a key pair, and requesting increases for account limits, if necessary.

  • Step 2. Download the Magento software

    Create a free Magento account, download Magento Open Source either with or without sample data, and place the software in an S3 bucket.

  • Step 3. Launch the Quick Start

    Launch the AWS CloudFormation template into your AWS account, specify parameter values, and create the stack. The Quick Start provides separate templates for end-to-end deployment and deployment into an existing VPC.

  • Step 4. Test your Magento deployment

    In this step, you’ll validate the installation of the AWS and Magento components. You’ll also validate the sample web store if you installed Magento with optional sample data.
