I have to admit getting this installed was not that easy. After many try with different image in aws, here`s what worked:
I used a bitnami image (bitnami-lampstack-5.5.13-0-dev-linux-ubuntu-12.04.4-x86_64-ebs-ami-dcb041b4-3-ami)
Its an ubuntu image which comes with mysql php and apache2 already installed. Make sure you open your security group for http and https.
wget http://invoiceplane.com/download/v1.3.1 --no-check-certificate
mv v1.3.1 v1.3.1.zip
(you only have to change AllowOverride none to All in apache config file).
mv htdocs bckhtdocs
chown bitnami:daemon htdocs/
cp /root/v1.3.1.zip .
chmod 777 uploads uploads/temp application/config/database.php applicatio n/helpers/mpdf/tmp application/logs
mysqladmin -p -u root password
(here you update your mysql password)
(i rebooted but you could just restart mysqld)
(it should already be started)
mysql -p -u root
(in mysql you create your database with CREATE DATABASE invoiceplane)
you can now browse to /setup and create your company in invoiceplane.
(here you add a line in .htaccess to prevent /setup from working)
you are done!
