Creating access keys
You need access keys to access our AWS resources from the commandline. By default your user account won't have any access keys. You can create them through the AWS console.
Visit the Identity and Access Management Console:
Next go to 'Users' tab and select your own user.
Scroll down to 'Security Credentials' and press 'Create Access Key':
Download or copy/paste the security credentials.
Note: keep the secret key as save as a password, it gives full access to your AWS account
Configuring AWS (with the access keys)
Enter your access key / secret and select
eu-west-1 as region.
