Install the CodeDeploy agent for Ubuntu Server

Note

We recommend installing the CodeDeploy agent with Amazon Systems Manager to be able to configure scheduled updates of the agent. For more information, see Install the CodeDeploy agent using Amazon Systems Manager.

To install the CodeDeploy agent on Ubuntu Server
  1. Sign in to the instance.

  2. Enter the following commands, one after the other:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install ruby-full
    sudo apt install wget
  3. Enter the following command:

    cd /home/ubuntu

    /home/ubuntu represents the default user name for an Ubuntu Server instance. If your instance was created using a custom AMI, the AMI owner might have specified a different default user name.

  4. Enter the following command:

    For the China (Beijing) Region:

    • wget https://aws-codedeploy-cn-north-1.s3.cn-north-1.amazonaws.com.cn/latest/install

    For the China (Ningxia) Region:

    • wget https://aws-codedeploy-cn-northwest-1.s3.cn-northwest-1.amazonaws.com.cn/latest/install

    For example:

    https://aws-codedeploy-us-east-2.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/latest/install

      Note

      Writing the output to a temporary log file is a workaround that should be used while we address a known bug with the install script on Ubuntu Server 20.04.
