On the home page, click the services tab and then go to compute and click 'EC2'. Once you are there you will chose your region on the top of the page in the header section. Next click the 'Launch Instance' button at the center of the page and then select an AMI. For this tutorial I am using Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS.
Next you will need to choose an instance type. I am just going to use the t2.large for the tutorial.
You can then skip to step six and under the source tap select my IP.
Next press Review and Launch and then create a new key pair to be able to connect with your instance. Once the instance is live, you can connect to your instance using an SSH through Terminal, PuTTY or similar program.
SSH into the Instance
Download key pair that you created earlier
Make sure you are in the same directory as the key and allow permissions
git clone https://github.com/dvandal/cryptonote-nodejs-pool.git pool
cd pool && npm update
Copy the config_examples/qwertycoin.json file to config.json
cp config_examples/qwertycoin.json config.json
Change the following variables: Line 2 - Pool host to your pools IP Address Line 30 - Your simplewallet address that you generated Line 138 - Set your API password Line 125-127 - (Optional) change pool fees
