My Capstone Project: Capstone Project

My partner and I were tasked with making a highly available and secure WordPress site across tw0 different Availability zones while being backed by a managed database. In addition to the WordPress site, we created two users and three S3 buckets. Using least privilege we gave user one the capability to create EC2 instances with t2micro only. Where as user two could only read the contents of bucket three.
