Notes- AWS setting up from zero

This notes a about to record how I start a Amazon AWS service from zero.

When I access to the AWS console first time, I got confused and just felt that I may not able to handle it. So I try to as an expert to do something for me, but the price just shocked me and finally, I decided to face this AWS monster I myself.

And now, I think I could easily handle EC2 and RDS in minutes, at the same time, I learned how to use linux commands and setting up phpmyadmin. To get all of these skills and knowledge just used me 3 days! Yes, so I thing the most important is : Don’t think too much, must google it and do it, times by times, and you get it.
