Running Plotly on Amazon Web Services (EC2 and S3)


I was wondering if anyone could please help me figure out why plotly isn’t running for me when I draw an iplot?

I have set up and Ubuntu server through EC2, stored my file in S3, installed annacona, python, plotly and cuffllicks,

When I run my programme this error message appears:

PlotlyError: Because you didn’t supply a ‘file_id’ in the call, we’re assuming you’re trying to snag a figure from a url. You supplied the url, ‘’, we expected it to start with ‘’.

could someone please help me figure out what my file_id should be?

Cheers in advance
