Is it possible to access a lamp server that is served on your VM in openstack from the public network

I am trying to create an infrastructure where this is possible and am a little confused on how to setup the network capabilities. Thanks for any help !

Yes, I do this all the time on my demo lab. First make sure you have a good LAMP instance, I tested a few of the prebuilt software appliances out there and they work fine. You will need to go in and create a security group for the instance and open up the http, https ports (80, 8080, 443). The LAMP images I am using from Turnkey also require management ports to be open at 12320-12322. When you launch you instance in OpenStack you need to add these security groups, next you will need a public IP address, which is in the same menu area as the security groups, and assign that public IP address to the LAMP Instance you just launched. Once you have all of this done, you should be able to reach you instance thru the public IP address you assigned it to. As I said earlier, I do this all the time, show how you can launch a LAMP instance and get on line to the public in under 60 seconds using OpenStack.

Bill Thank you, okay one more question for you, i have access to a server to setup my openstack architecture and just wanted to double check my approach was correct. I am planning on using the devstack all in one node instance of openstack to develop my infrastructure.

Devstack is designed for development only, production or anything beyond should really be deployed in a OpenStack best practice architecture where you isolate the "core" OpenStack services to a set of machines and a set of machines for the hypervisor tier.
