Installing Testlink (Test Management Tool) on Ubuntu 12.04 (AWS EC2) with URL Rewrite

After finding scattered offerings when it came to installing Testlink on Ubuntu i decided to document the process. Heres the rundown:

Create a new micro instance (ubuntu 12.04) using the ‘select existing’ key pair, if you don’t have an existing create a new one and name it something memorable and download it to a folder that’s easy to get too.

Create a security group and set the inbound ports to be the following:

Go to your instance page and right click on the instance just created and choose “Connect” Select “Connect with a standalone SSH Client”
copy the example in the popup window. Eg
·ssh -i scottyg_au.pem ubuntu@
Open up terminal (Mac) or Cygwin (PC)
Cd to the folder with the .pem file You need to modify the permissions on the .pem file, do this by running
·chmod 400 ‘xx.pem’. Eg chmod 400 scottyg_au.pem
Paste in the ‘ssh’ command into your terminal ssh -i scottyg_au.pem ubuntu@

Type “yes” when prompted to add the key to the known hosts

On the Ubuntu Instance:
