Hi all! I am attempting to host a Shiny app via an Amazon EC2 instance using Shiny Server. I am following this guide. I should note that this has worked for me in the past.
However, I am now getting an error where I am unable to load the app after following the instructions. I have followed all the instructions to the best of my ability.
I have installed the Shiny Server, and have confirmed that it is running.
I have checked the shiny-server.conf file and it is indeed listening on port 3838.
I have updated the instance security rules to allow the 3838 port
I have confirmed that I have a folder called "myapp" with a basic app file (I am testing with this sample app first)
Finally, I have navigated to the IP address using the :3838/myapp suffix (this is what has worked in the past), but I get an error:
The log folder for the shiny-server is empty, which leads me to believe its never being spun up/initialized in the first place when I try to open it.
Anyone have any insight into what's happening here? I am very inexperienced with server hosting and the like, so any hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
