CloudFormation Helper Scripts

We deploy the real environment, you take the scenario-based labs on us. Hands-on, from anywhere, at any time.

Time required: 2 Hours


Create a LAMP stack using CloudFormation helper scripts to bootstrap and update the instance. Download the CloudFormation example template used in the lab here: https://linuxacademy.com/cp/guides/download/refsheets/guides/refsheets/lamp-stack_1478287817.json Note: Additional resources were added (to create a custom VPC) in the template which are not discussed in the lab guide and lesson, because these were required in order to work with our lab platform but they're not the focus of the lab. Please ignore those.
