Step 4. Test Your Magento Deployment

When the AWS CloudFormation template has successfully created the stack, all web server nodes will be running with the software installed in your AWS account. To connect to the Magento stack, use the URL of the Elastic Load Balancing endpoint, as shown in Figure 7.

This URL brings up the Magento store home when you’ve installed the Magento software with sample data, as shown in Figure 7.

You can access the Magento Admin Panel by going to the URL endpoint followed by the admin path. You can log in with the user name and password you chose when creating the stack. Make sure to change the user name and password for subsequent logins to help ensure the security of your account.

To connect to the web server instance and validate MySQL, use SSH to connect to the bastion host instance in your VPC.

Use an SSH agent to forward your private key on connection. For more information about SSH agents, see the GitHub documentation.

Important

Do not copy your private key to the bastion host instance.

You can test MySQL connectivity from the web server instance as shown in Figure 9. Because Amazon Aurora is compatible with MySQL 5.6, you can use the same tools to connect to the deployed Amazon Aurora database as you would for Amazon RDS for MySQL.
