AWS configuration check and support

This is my requirement for this first project which focuses on AWS configuration.

Items a, b & c are quick checks that an AWS expert can quickly review/resolve (hopefully). I'd like to be talked through your review so I learn how to better manage my account. Item d (PEM key replacement) is the real hands on project that I am not equipped for.

I set up an AWS EC2 account with 50G EBS. I installed WHM/CPANEL and configured a couple dozen accounts and domains - none using much disk space. Should be over 45G free.

I need your help with reviewing and updating my AWS/EC2 configuration:

a) Did I set it up right? (root and EBS storage). I want the WHM/CPANEL install and all of the account data to survive reboot and termination of instance. I think this means I need to use EBS and I think I have it set up that way. See attached images for EC2 and EBS from dashboard.

b) Are backups set up correctly? This is a WHM set up. I want to be able to recover my entire set up in case the EC2 or primary EBS fail. See attached PDF for configuration and image of daily log message.

c) Fix WHM update error - says only 1.7G left of free disk space. The WHM update needs 3G - but I'm thinking there should be over 45G free on my EBS volume where WHM is running. See attached WHM error. I am also receiving the following error message daily. I think this is the disk where WHM is running:

The filesystem “/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root”, which is mounted at “/”, has reached “warn” status because it is 86.71% full.

Notification Type: warn ⚠

Server: [url removed, login to view]

Primary IP: [url removed, login to view]

Filesystem: /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root

Mount Point: /

Percent Used: 86.71%

Disk Information: Used: 10.91 GB Available: 1.78 GB Total: 13.37 GB

I do not understand what disk or partition this is. It's apparently not my 50G EBS volume.

d) I need to replace the existing PEM key with new one. Ideally I would have 1 permanent PEM key for and another active transient key to use with developers such as yourself.

- at a minimum I need the existing key replaced. If this involves creating a new instance I need to be 100% sure we have the data for current instance and EBS saved so we can be back up and running quickly.

Since this involves some critical security aspects of my AWS account I would prefer you control my computer via screen sharing while updating the PEM (I am Mac based but can also fire up Windows 7 if need be). Perhaps you can talk me through the other checks you make for items a, b, and c.

I am on the west coast of the US and would look forward to a chat.

Thanks, Dean
