This step will create the VPC and all components using the example CloudFormation template.
Download the latest version of the CloudFormation template here: vpc-alb-app-db.yaml
Go to the AWS CloudFormation console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation and click Create Stack > With new resources
Leave Prepare template setting as-is
For Stack name use WebApp1-VPC
Look over the Parameters and their default values.
Leave all parameters as their default values unless you are experimenting.
For Configure stack options we recommend configuring tags, which are key-value pairs, that can help you identify your stacks and the resources they create. For example, enter Owner in the left column which is the key, and your email address in the right column which is the value. We will not use additional permissions or advanced options so click Next. For more information, see Setting AWS CloudFormation Stack Options.
This will take you to the CloudFormation stack status page, showing the stack creation in progress.
When it shows status CREATE_COMPLETE, then you are finished with this step.
Now that you have a new VPC, check out 200_Automated_Deployment_of_EC2_Web_Application to deploy an example web application inside it.
