How to set up a WPT private instance and test agent - 0liver - 11-16-2015 11:56 PM

Hello,

last week I put a lot of time into setting up a WPT server and a test agent because the documentation at https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.org/docs/private-instances was too vague for me, I guess. Also, I had never used Amazon AWS or EC2 before, so this complicated things further.

After successfully setting everything up I felt the urge to share the shortest path to a working setup with the community so that other developers/testers can could start running tests within 20 minutes, and not the 3 hours that I almost spent on that.

Here's the blog post I've put together on the topic: How to quickly set up a WPT server and test agent.

I'd be glad if at least one person out there will find it helpful.

Cheers!
