Which Amazon ec2 instance AMI to choose. All I need is GlassFish and Java 8.

Need to set up Amazon ec2 Linux servers with GlassFish. Having several difficulties:

  1. Had one running, but when I made an backup “image” of the instance it stopped functioning. Could not restart GlassFish.
  2. 8 times, tried Elastic Bean automated setup with 64bit Debian jessie v1.0.2 running GlassFish 4.1 Java 8 (Preconfigured - Docker), but this could not be accessed with WinSCP or FileZilla - could access with PuTTY.
  3. All other configurations come with Tomcat, PHP, MySQL, Docker… etc, but the only thing I need is GlassFish and Java 8
  4. Can anyone help - I’d be happy to pay for your time.

My recommendation: Hit up their support for the assistance.

Even if I knew, I honestly wouldn’t say, because this is the wrong forum for that type of request.
