[rt-devel] RT on AWS EC2 Micro as a Community AMI?

Installed on micro with nginx and external forking fcgi (10 processes - ok
to serve 100 user with medium activity) and even a bit of memory left. It's
with default RT config, for example loading less translations helps a lot.
It was also 64 bit system, 32 bit in this case would give another memory

With some tricks it took less then two hours to setup EC2 ubuntu instance,
RDS mysql instance, compile and install custom perl, all perl modules from
CPAN, install nginx and configure web server. The only thing I didn't do
today is registration to access AWS.
