After the third time setting up a server with these technologies, I started to get annoyed with having to remember all the different steps to get everything working together.

If you don’t mind paying, you can select a better type at this point.
Then click “Review and Launch” then “Launch” on the following page. As the Amazon warning states, you won’t be able to download the file again. Back at the main EC2 page, you’ll now see your new Instance when you click “Instances” again.
