Question Root user acces in EC2


Hi

I am starting with Linux in EC2 instance.

My first big problem was that I can access to the EC2 instance using the user and key by AWS Console but the user I am login with doesn't have permission to create files in the server.

I've tried to login using root but It is nor working.

The only way I guess I can do what I can is to give the user ec2-user the same privileges as the root.

Any tip to guide me on how to accomplish this?

Thanks!

Good! Keep it that way, especially if you don't understand why it would be bad in the first place.

Then you guessed wrong. If it's installed you could however use sudo.

Yes: don't.

What Linux distribution will you be using? Have you had any experience with this or another distribution? If not that it would be wise for you to read and practice before you fsck it up.
