Getting started with Bitnami’s cloud tools for AWS
Before installing these cloud tools for AWS, make sure that you have a valid Amazon Web Services account, as they will be required after installation. Make sure that the “config/aws-credentials.txt and config/aws-config.txt” file is present and add the AWS Secret Access Key and AWS Access Key ID credentials in it.
Next, you will have to copy the AWS PEM-encoded X.509 certificate to the “config/ec2.crt” location, as well as the AWS Private key file to the “config/ec2.key” location. Last but not least, make sure that the aforementioned files have the 600 permission.
