Light Sail VS EC2 selection for web application server
Hello Guys, We are working on architecture for web application. We currently have three servers in our design - web server ( front end), application server ( backend) and database - all hosted on Amazon EC2. However, we thought of leveraging Amazon light Sail instead of EC2. Our proposed web application will angular based and going to have dynamic reports with option to steam live video with approximately 10k users accessing the video streaming. Please advise if Amazon light Sail will be suitable for this kind of operations or need to go with EC2?

Do lightsail container services have a public IP?
Nothing in the web UI, the CLI, nor documentation mentions networking details for lightsail containers. Lightsail instances get a public IP (and the documentation even mentions that there is no such thing as a private subnet for lightsail), but I cannot determine anything for containers. My issue is that the service I am deploying tries to connect to another service on the internet but results in a read timeout. It is extremely difficult to debug since you cannot connect to the container, nor view any network info. And apparently lightsail runs its own VPC in a separate AWS account that you cannot view in any way. I tried turning on "vpc peering", but to no avail. So are lightsail containers completely blocked off from the internet (outbound traffic)?
How to free a instance, been "stopping" for 15 min.
I have a lightsail server that times out. FAQ reccommended that I start and stop but it is stuck in stopping phase for over 15 min. No msg about degraded hardware, fairly new instance and low usasage. Is this common and do you have any tricks to try?
Unable to access lightsail distribution from outside Australia
Hi all, pretty new to AWS/Lightsail so hopefully i can get some help. I have setup an instance, static IP, distribution and custom domain for a site that is hosted on lightsail. It's working fine using the custom domain and standard cloudfront.net domain for everyone inside australia. It seems anyone outside AU can't access it. We have tested from multiple countries and no success but every test from every browser/device/location inside AU works fine. I can't for the life of me figure out what is happening. URL in question is https://stardust.weanmeister.com . Hoping some experts can offer some advice. D

Lightsail - EC2 - Instances Hard Limit
Hello AWS Pros ! I have a question about the limits of the instances. Have you ever tried or maybe had a chance to work on a project with plenty of instances in one REGION? I have information that with the default setting, I can create up to 20 instances per REGION for Lightsail and EC2, but do you know how much more I can request? Is there a hard limit? For example: with the best possible setup for my project/case, I can request maximum 99 instances or 1000 instances. Thanks :)
Question regarding Lightsail/Plesk and snapshots
Hello, I am going through the process of upgrading one of my LightSail instances. In order to do this I created a snapshot from the original then created a new instance. However I noticed something strange, and maybe my lack of knowledge in AWS is to blame. I cannot gain access to plesk in the new instance I created from the snapshot. Plesk is asking for a username/pw yet the original did not have one set up. I only gained access to the original instance by using the following command: sudo plesk login | grep -v internal:8. I would then use the url provided and it gave me access, no need for username/pw. Yet on this new instance (which I assume should be a straight copy) is forcing a username/pw, as well as sending me to the ip address of the old instance. How do I gain access to the plesk on my new instance? Any insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated, as of right now I have no way of accessing plesk for the new instance.
site deleted accidentally from lightsail.
Please help. I've deleted a site this morning on lightsail because it was named as a template but it turns out it was a live site. It was a wordpress site and a lot of the editing was done within the instance so we don't have any build files to rebuild from or snapshots of the site. Is there any way to retrieve it?
How to upgrade Lightsail Postgres instance? (minor version upgrade)
According to the RDS docs, it's possible to manually trigger minor version upgrades for PostgreSQL or even have it upgrade automatically once a new version is approved. I currently have a database instance in Lightsail, running version 12.8. When creating a new instance, the dropdown offers version 12.11, so I'm assuming I should also be able to upgrade my current instance to 12.11. Where do I find the manual / auto upgrade options in the Lightsail interface?
