I have created the amazon account, created an EC2 instance with Ubuntu 16.04 running on it. Converted perfectly good pem file to ppk format because I am currently on a windows machine. Installed Python3 and Flask. Created a simple Flask “Hello World” application and served it via the built in testing server. Sadly, because of one of many potential situations I don’t have access to the hosted content from outside of the server, but if I curl 127.0.0.1:5000 I get my expected content.
Tomorrow I will likely set up the app, as it is, inside of a flask application. I will have to do some work to the templates to make sure that useful information is displayed in a meaningful manner.
