AWS - via bitnami virtual machine (not cloud hosting)
Hi, I have a simple single page static web app that was created in XAMPP locally; ive gone through all the steps in setting up AWS/Bitnami virtual machine/DNS and linked to my purchased domain name. My webapp is located at www.example.com/example and is working perfectly. However, the landing page for my website is the bitnami index file in htdocs. If I alter the index file (even just changing the content in to make it more appropriate for my webapp, it breaks the ssl certificates and browsers issue a mismatched cert warning.
I would like to make a custom landing page for my webapp, but at this point I would settle for making the root webpage redirect to www.example.com/example, but I cant figure out how to do this. (Ive read a few bitnami threads about altering the index file and config file but they all pertained to joomla or redmine... I also have read that AWS redirects can be done via S3, but I dont understand how that interacts with my EC2 instance, or why I would even need S3 when my app is under 3 MB.)
Im sorry for the dumb question - Ive only worked with wordpress sites in the past on managed hosting (where redirects are as simple as clicking a few buttons in cpanel, so the LAMP stack, AWS. and site certificates are completely foreign to me.
If anyone is feeling especially generous with their knowledge, I would love to know if I am even barking up the right tree by using AWS/bitnami for my webapp - one that will (hopefully) eventually handle a large volume of users digesting information from multiple APIs. For SEO purposes Ill probably need some kind of CMS to publish new content relating to my webapp, and I also plan to duplicate the webapp itself into new folders/pages and tweak the code to make it more pertinent to other demographics, creating multiple "versions"... as well as create android and ios apps.
Any insight would be amazing!
