I created a fresh Adobe Media Server 5.0 instance on Amazon EC2 AWS, I connected over SSH and changed the default password, everything looks ok. But the amsadmin doesn't seem to have enough access to administer the instance. I can read most of the files and folders (access denied for /lib; /lost+found and /root).
I can connect ok
ssh -i key.pem firstname.lastname@example.org
I can upload to the media folder
scp -i key.pem test.f4v email@example.com:/mnt/applications/vod/media
I can't upload content webroot; for example if I wanted to add a crossdomain.xml file to the web root.
scp -i key.pem crossdomain.xml firstname.lastname@example.org:/mnt/webroot/
I can't create a directory; I want to setup S3 to store content, step 5 says to:
Create a directory on the instance to mount the S3 bucket, for example, /mnt/s3fs.
But under the amsadmin account I get an access denied error, is this expected?
How can I get access to these restricted areas?
Try using sudo with your commands.
