johnro.net Now on AWS!

My WordPress site is now on AWS! I spent a good chunk of my time debugging the All-in-One WP Migration plugin to get my migration working, and I finally realized I skipped an important step in their migration documentation:

Migrate WordPress from PHP 5 to PHP 7

1. Make sure that all plugins are deactivated. This will ensure your website error is not caused by any third-party software

If you are getting stuck in the “Done Preparing Blogs” stage, then it could be because you didn’t deactivate all the plugins.

Cheers!

johnro.net will be moved to AWS

It’s funny, I was confident I was going to post more often this year. I promise myself I would back in January, and here we are, half a year later, for my second post of the year. So many things have happened, which I hope to write about in later posts.

I recently took an AWS class under the UCLA extension program. It felt like a long 10 weeks, but I am very glad I went through with it. With some AWS experience now under my belt, I feel like I have enough knowledge to start my migration from Hostmonster to AWS.

Stay tuned.

pip install awscli
Reinstalling EB CLI solved the issue:
pip install awsebcli
