AppXen Docker Swarm stack comes with a fully configured Docker Swarm environment. With Docker Swarm you can containerize your applications and scale them securely utilizing Docker. Swarm provides a way to manage multiple containers across multiple EC2 hosts. Learn more about Docker Swarm.
When launching your instance, provide the following security group rules:
- TCP, 22, 22, YOUR-IP-ADDRESS*
Connect to your instance via SSH. Within the home directory there is a sample `stack.yml` file that can be used to spin up a sample wordpress stack. The instance is setup as a swarm master with persistent volumes. For more details on running a swarm cluster see: https://docs.docker.com/get-started/part4/
When launching the sample stack, you can log into the Adminer web interface using port 8080 by default, on your EC2 provided DNS, and use the credentials from the stack.yml.
