This post will guide you how to install Liferay on Cloud. For this I have used eApps cloud hosting which include OS templates. For Liferay installation use CentOS Control Panel.
1. Go to eApps and click on create a cloud
2. Customize you Virtual Machine.
Its better to use 1GB RAM, and 20% CPU Share for tomcat server (you can configure this any time)
3. Use 50% discount for Monthly Pre-paid with this coupon code VM1105501M
4. Select your domain name and complete the Registration and complete payment.
5. After successful registration and payment you can login to control panel.
Control panel display Virtual Machine details. After your system is on you can click on control panel link and login with root.
6. After login to your admin panel you can view Applications
7. Select JAVA SE 6 and Install after this Install Liferay Portal with Tomcat.
After Installation you can access your liferay instance at your domain on 8080 port.
