    Hello everyone,

    I would like to migrate my social engine website to AWS, on to an EC2 instance. I've searched google and I can't find anything about this; No tutorials, even on AWS Marketplace the only find 2 AMI.

     

    Any help appreciated.

    There are some experts who offer the service, check the experts in the marketplace https://www.socialengine.com/experts . I know you will need your server set up to match our requirements, https://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/portal/articles/1649350-socialengine-requirements . The only tuts we have for Amazon are for storage, https://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/en/portal/articles/1636682-how-to-use-the-cloud-storage-feature?b_id=14386 but perhaps that link will help you for that part of your hosting.

    You might consider TMD or Siteground. Both have products specifically taylor-made for Social Engine. And when (not if) you have a problem, at least you get to speak to a human. 24/7 Support at no extra charge, unlike AWS. Of the two, Siteground has better reviews.

    Thanks you Steve, I'm going with Siteground.

    However they suspended my site, because it has malicious code in it. ! What?!

    I am creating another topic under Help Section.

    We run a dedicated setup through KnownHost. Yes you pay a bit more but the service is amazing. Initial response time is minutes (Usually less then 5) with a resolution shortly after. But they only take care of hardware and OS. They will not touch the script.

    I have an account with SiteGround at the moment, they are very helpful, I do recommend them.

     

    Thank you for all the messages.

    I STRONGLY do not suggest you use SEAO for any work. EVER. If you are looking for hosting, depending on your needs we can help you find the best solution. I do also recommend SiteGround as they are consistent in their work and they are user and privacy friendly. SEAO has no incentive NOT to keep a copy of your data for their own personal use. 

    If you need a more robust hosting solution with full content delivery, web application firewall, global failover and more, my team can help you. Just reach out. 

    To summarize, DO NOT let SEAO near your site, SiteGround is great - I can help you with a dedicated or more enterprise solution.

    FM Ryan, have you witnessed SEAO copy a customer's data for their own use?

    I have witnessed their prime messenger plugin that has code that copies user data that takes the control away from the site owner into their own site and their terms do not protect the data
