Unfortunately, after several months of the running instance as a test machine, and when php5-dev package is installed, the error comes up. CPU spin lock!
Solution #3 is applied to the running instance, snapshot EBS and spin up the latest AMI ami-1c5db975 from www.alestic.com.
Change the Elastic IP to the new running instance with the new EBS snapshot attached and viola… its ready to go!
Though I’ve been using the Ubuntu Alestic AMI for the last few months to test and setup applications, I tried to sign up to the Ubuntu Server on Amazon – Beta Programme.
Hope to learn,discuss, collaborate and help others in area of cloud computing.
