Create a VPC Manually on AWS
In this lab, you'll practice manually creating a VPC in AWS. This will involve creating a VPC and configuring networking. When you're finished, you'll have deployed a VPC that contains an Internet-accessible EC2 instance.
Terms and conditions apply.
Create Your VPC and Subnets
In this challenge, you’ll create a VPC with a public subnet attached to an internet gateway.
Configure VPC Traffic Routing
In this challenge, you’ll create a route table to give your EC2 web server instance an egress (outbound) path to the Internet.
Launch an EC2 Instance into Your VPC
In this challenge you’ll add an Amazon Linux EC2 instance to your VPC and configure it to use the subnet.
Test SSH and HTTP Connectivity
In this challenge you’ll use SSH to connect to your EC2 instance and install the Apache web server. You’ll then verify the HTTP route table rule by accessing the default Apache web page.
Provided environment for hands-on practice
