Deploy Ghost to AWS using RDS and EC2
Learn AWS with a hands-on project! Deploy Ghost to AWS using EC2 and RDS. Gain practical skills in networking, SSH, and command line.
One of the hardest parts of learning AWS is understanding how the different moving parts work together.
In this course, we tackle a real-world project of deploying the blogging platform Ghost to AWS using EC2 (the server where Ghost will run) and RDS (a relational database for Ghost to store data).
This course ties together skills like networking, SSH, and using the command line while getting a realistic full-stack platform up and running.
Whether you’re studying for a certificate like Certified Cloud Practitioner or just learning for fun, this hands-on project will be a great way to dig in and get some practice!
