Re-configure dreamhost evniorment to support Amazon WebService

I was trying to make my dreamhost to support Amazon WebService (aws), the first problem I encountered is, missing libxslt.

Following the instruction here, I managed to install libxslt to my custom location.

Watch out, the link on http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/downloads.html is actually pointing to libxml2 which doesn’t include libxslt. You want to find the correct link from ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxslt/

 

The next problem is openssl support missing from ruby. I had to re-configure ruby to make it openssl ready. Instruction can be found here.

 

All aws samples passed, then.

With one minor issue left, I got warning when running ruby:

Invalid gemspec in [/home/me/.gems/specifications/openssl-extensions-1.2.0.gemspec]: invalid date format in specification: “2011-11-03 00:00:00.000000000Z”

Hope I can figure this out later.

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
