things that have happened since the new year (aka yesterday and today) - got my spider up and running (FINALLY T.T), got my script done for resizing and uploading the images to my AWS S3, and now, here I am building my EC2 instance!
Keeping a record of this because it is fairly painful (spider ranked at 10, resizing images about a 3, this is like, 7… for now).
Here we go!
Pick an AMI - I have no clue so for now I’m going with the one that my udemy online course is using. Not a GPU cause I’m basically just going to use this to upload the images to S3.
After I SSH-ed in, I tried to do a pip3 install - failed.
Error message: The program ‘pip3’ is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install python3-pip
Ok, so I do the sudo apt install right… fail.
Error message: E: Unable to locate package python-pip
Finally after some googling, this worked:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-add-repository universe sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo apt-get install python3-pip
Another error pops up:
Error message: locale.Error: unsupported locale setting
export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
A suggestion comes up: You are using pip version 8.1.1, however version 9.0.1 is available. You should consider upgrading via the ‘pip install –upgrade pip’ command.
And the suggestion doesn’t work, so after googling, here goes:
sudo -H python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip
AFTER that… (i had alot of errors, i know) - for all the pip3 installs, i had to add sudo in front (to indicate super user) like so
sudo pip3 install pillow
No clue about that…
because I was accessing AWS i had to download awscli again, set up my credentials etc etc…
but finally…I GOT IT MOVING MUAHAHAH
80,000 images, here i come ;)
