Set up a new PHP environment

Open the Elastic Beanstalk console.

You can see any existing application environments you have already set up.

Select 'Create New Application'

Name your applciation an then decide if its to be a web server or worker environment

Select Predefined Configuration: PHP

N.B. If you don't want the default PHP version (e.g. PHP7 which removes some functions like older mysql functions) then you need to select the "Change platform version" link in the text that appears!!

Your files

You can simply zip up your PHP  etc files and provide this as the source.  The URL of the files is just the URL shown once the environment is created + the file URL, all very simple as you'd expect.

To provide a new version of the files in an existign environment

Press the Upload and Deploy button
