AWS CodeDeploy
User Guide (API Version 2014-10-06)

The procedures in this guide support the new console design. If you choose to use the older version of the console, you will find many of the concepts and basic procedures in this guide still apply. To access help in the new console, choose the information icon.

Install or reinstall the AWS CodeDeploy agent for Amazon Linux or RHEL

Sign in to the instance, and run the following commands, one at a time.

Note

In the fourth command, /home/ec2-user represents the default user name for an Amazon Linux or RHEL Amazon EC2 instance. If your instance was created using a custom AMI, the AMI owner might have specified a different default user name.

sudo yum update
sudo yum install ruby
sudo yum install wget
cd /home/ec2-user
wget https://bucket-name.s3.amazonaws.com/latest/install
chmod +x ./install
sudo ./install auto

bucket-name is the name of the Amazon S3 sds-s3-latest-bucket-name bucket that contains the AWS CodeDeploy Resource Kit files for your region. For example, for the US East (Ohio) Region, replace bucket-name with aws-codedeploy-us-east-2. For a list of bucket names, see Resource Kit Bucket Names by Region.

To check that the service is running, run the following command:

sudo service codedeploy-agent status

If the AWS CodeDeploy agent is installed and running, you should see a message like The AWS CodeDeploy agent is running.

If you see a message like error: No AWS CodeDeploy agent running, start the service and run the following two commands, one at a time:

sudo service codedeploy-agent start
sudo service codedeploy-agent status
