Launch the instance
Login to AWS console and click on “Launch Instance” in EC2 Dashboard

In the Description Tab you can find Public IP easily:
Access by using IP:
ssh -i /home/user/Desktop/aws_xubiweb_key.pem instance_username@IP_ADDRESS
instance_username: Instance User name, default: ubuntu
IP_ADDRESS: Replace by your instance IP
Change IP by identity
Add in the first line of /etc/hosts :
Now you can simply access by using:
ssh -i /home/user/Desktop/aws_xubiweb_key.pem ubuntu@aws-xubiweb
Change SSH config
sudo vi ~/.ssh/config
Add in the first line:
That’s all. Now you just type:
Opening necessary ports:
Go to Security groups
Click select on "lauch-wizard-1" group
Click on tab Inbound and Outbound -> click edit and add like this:
That's all the configuration for AWS which will be used for launch Odoo instance.
