Recently in deploying a wordpress web site to Amazon we required to work with a third party who used DPLOY.IO for continuous deployment. To enable this we did the following 1. Create an account on dploy.io 2. Connect to a GITHIUB repo 3. Create an environment which used a SSH connection to our target instance on Amazon 4. Use SSH public key authentication 5. Download the SSH public key from DPLOY.IO 6. Create a user account on our Amazon Instance which we will associate with the downloaded public key 7. Copy the downloaded public key in to the .ssh/authorized_keys for that account 8. Save the environment on DPLOY.IO and this will test the connection Use the /var/log/secure to ensure a successful connection is been made .
