Sorry to see you're having trouble. To get some blunt things out of the way,
what AMI are you using?
Also, are you specifying your user data in the AWS instance request wizard

Since you're logging into your instance, please also check the contents of
the file /opt/galaxy/pkg/ec2autorun.py.log
This log file the is first entry point for CloudMan on an instance so it
should tell us what's happening.
Lastly, apache is not being used with Galaxy Cloud so unfortunately that
won't help this time around.
