    socket server program in Amazon S3

    Hi everyone!

    I am planning to upload my website to Amazon S3

    Do you know if Amazon S3 allows to execute external scripts on the server?

    I have a socket server program listening for incoming connections for websockets. It is written in PHP, but if Amazon S3 does not allow PHP, I do not care to write it again in JAVA or any other language.

    Thank you very much!

    S3 is storage, not an instance.
    I believe you can run php files from an S3 bucket.

    See http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/...alHosting.html

    No - amazon S3 does not allow PHP - it only serves static files.
    You will want something like Amazon EC2/webhosting/vps/server for this
