This probably straddles a few topics but I’m currently having trouble setting up Origin Pull with W3 Total Cache on Amazon Cloudfront.
Whenever I click Create Distribution in the CDN Configuration of W3TC it doesn’t create anything in Cloudfront. When I click test it fails.
Currently it has the origin listed as my EC2 host name, which for the moment is the siteurl and home of my blog, I’m not ready to deploy it to it’s eventual .com yet.
Thus a follow up Question: Why can’t we change the “Origin” in the W3TC config if we’re using origin pull?
Originally I had configured a Cloudfront Distribution and Origin on my own, but there’s no where to select that in W3TC. After reading a different support post I disabled that one in hopes that re-clicking Create Distribution in W3TC would create it. Should I manually create a distribution with the origin listed on the W3TC CDN settings page?
My entire infrastructure will be on AWS.
I have WordPress running on an EC2 instance with RDS as the server.
I plan on allowing multiple EC2 servers for load purposes.
I have an Elastic Load Balancer which will be where my DNS points to eventually.
