Configure an apache2, php 7.0, Ubuntu 16.04 custom platform for AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
We’ve created and deployed an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Ubuntu 16.04 PHP based Custom Platform. The custom EBS platforms allow us to customise the operating system, installed software, scripts and other system configurations. The AWS Elastic Beanstalk default PHP platform comes with apache, PHP 7.0 or 7.1 but it uses Amazon Linux as OS. Sometimes, it’s useful to have an Ubuntu 16.04 environment on EBS, so we configured an AWS EBS custom platform. The custom platform’s scripts can be found on our Github account here.
Pay attention when selecting the AMI you would like to use for this custom platform because they differ from region to region. For this configuration, we used the ami-1b791862 AMI and deployed the configuration on the Ireland region.
This custom AWS Elastic Beanstalk Ubuntu 16.04 PHP platform has the following setup:
