    Hi all

    Has anyone had much experience (or success) using an application platform to run Xenforo, like AWS Elastic Beanstalk or Heroku?

    I'll let you know, I'm currently moving a (previously) vB4 site to AWS and plan to set it up for the best scaling structure, which I guess is the elastic beanstalk. What a name!

    Used the importer yesterday (flawless, quick) and now running XF 1.2.x.

    I too am anxious to know if anyone else out there is using Elastic Beanstalk and has any input / review...

    I use the AWS setup including all its services and it works great:

    Route53
    Cloudfront
    ELB
    S3
    EBS
    EC2
    Opsworks
    Elasticache
    RDS
    SQS
    SNS
    Lambda
    Elasticsearch

    Its nice to have additional information by using:

    Config
    Cloudtrail
    Cloudwatch


    It takes some time to understand these resources and set them up.

    For just running a forum I guess it is much easier to tell a webhoster: "give me a webserver with php nginx mysql, add the xenforo nginx.conf settings and tell me the passwords for the database."
