I have just installed Drupal 8.1.3 on an Amazon instance using the instructions provided here.

I can connect via SSH (console) to my instance successfully.

However, when I try to browse my public DNS, I get:

This site can’t be reached

ec2-54-187-215-79.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com took too long to respond.

This is the first time I am performing this installation.

I have performed a DNS check and it says: Delegation not found at parent

I am wondering whether it is a Drupal related issue or not. How can I solve this?

  • Hi, as this has turned out not to be Drupal-related I've closed it

It's because by default port 22 (SSH) comes open in your EC2 security group, but port 80 (HTTP) is not open.

You need to edit your security group. To get there, in your EC2 list, scroll all the way to the right and click on the blue security group name. You will be taken to your security group settings page, for inbound, add Custom TCP Rule of port 80

enter image description here

PS: If you're going to use HTTPS might aswell open port 443 (HTTPS)
