I suppose if you're using an API to run the CLI, that could be asked in Stackoverflow, but might not be best.

I don't have the question handy, but saw that a question was closed as off topic because it related to aws-cli itself, which isn't a Linux distro.

Maybe group all VPS stuff into one stack?

Flagged to close because the AWS command line tools are not platform specific, nor are any of the problems mentioned here. – Evan Carroll Apr 22 '16 at 16:16

This question:


will be closed. It's not really a programming question...

makes me wonder. migrate to where?

  • I don't understand your question, specifically the bit at the end about VPS stuff into one stack?

    The first question, AWS-cli, while off topic for U&L, is perfect for Web Applicataions under the /amazon-ec2 tag. The email question is now, for me, a 404 page, so I can only guess, but it might have been on topic there too. Or, if it was from a web master point of view, then it might have fit on Pro Webmasters, which also deals with AWS hosting.

  • @GypsySpellweaver thanks, didn't realize that web applications questions could be also CLI.

  • I think that some questions regarding the AWS CLI would fit well here. For example, if you were calling AWS CLI commands from a Bash or KSH script or needed help with a one liner.
