Setup Web Server on EC2 Amazon Linux AMI

Step 1: Server Credentials

This assumes you are now connected to the server via SSH.

  • sudo -s Enter root mode for admin access
  • groupadd devgroup Create new group to be later granted access to /var/www/html

Creating a new Root User

  • useradd -G root,devgroup masterdev Create new root user. Also add to the devgroup
  • passwd masterdev Change password for the new root user
  • At this point, you'll need to input your new root user's new password
You can’t perform that action at this time.
