Once the stack has successfully deployed, it may take a few minutes for the load balancer checks to succeed and allow traffic to pass to the s3ftp instance.

Find the web admin url

  1. Still in the AWS Cloudformation service, locate the Outputs tab of the deployed s3ftp stack.

  2. Copy the WebAdminUrl value and paste it into another browser tab.

  3. Acknowledge the TLS connection error

    The default installation has an untrusted certificate installed on the instance, generated by kumulus.Works. Depending on your browser you may see a different message here. Acknowledge the error and proceed to the website.

    We will fix the certificate error later in the Customise chapter.
