Using the Amazon Web services is a modern way to have your environment in the Cloud. It supports load balancing between your instances and thanks to Auto Scaling you’ll never need to pay for more than you use. Basically the Auto Scaling launches additional instances to meet your demand, usually with help of a CPU alarm. Later removes them when not needed any more.

Recently I had to install a web server on the Amazon cloud EC2 and they only got Fedora 8 64bit to install in their public pre installed images. Fedora 13 requires a newer version of RPM so you need to upgrade to Fedora 10 first. As it was quite a while ago since I had to do this I wanted to share me steps with you.
