Easy and straightforward Linux image.

  • By Visualjeff

Can't go wrong with this image.

I would of given a 5 star but I had to research what account to login as. FYI... Its "Admin"

Login info is wrong...

  • By Travis Eddy

its not root its admin so:
ssh -i <pem_file> admin@<ip_address>

ssh -i <pem_file> root@<ip_address>

like it says in the amazon console.

Now hopefully that's the only bug, because I really like debian.

changed defaults

ssh does not allow to connect as root? why change defaults? original debian allows it.

why create admin user? why not to use root by default, and let me choose first user name.

Very good, but...

Thanks for the Debian GNU/Linux AMI. The only issue I had experienced is that login is required with 'admin', instead of 'root' or 'ec2-user' as mentioned in the Amazon documentation.

Looks fine but needed an instance-store backed image

Span up OK, looked like a nice clean Debian install, but unfortunately we needed an instance-backed store AMI image, so we had to go back to using the rightscale image...

Love Debian, finally something official

  • By Ben Abrams

As a Systems Admin in a mostly Debian Shop still migrating from Ubuntu I was very happy when I saw there was a simple way to install Debian. Several months ago there wasn't an easy way that did not involve using some persons AMI who was not offically connected to the Debian Project). Was gonna result to installing Ubuntu and cry at how old most of the packages are compared to debian testing (which is quite stable for anyone wondering), but Debian came to the rescue.

Keep it up!

Full power of Debian on AWS EC2

ssh user name is "admin" I've been wondering hours before getting a response. Hope it will help someone...

debian the stable

  • By artooro "artooro"

Debian has the advantage of stability and access to more packages than the Amazon Linux AMI.

Great Base Debian Server...

  • By Brian Wagner

This server is a very basic debian server. Perfect for building your projects on without having all the bulk of Ubuntu. Everything you need to get started is installed and SSH starts automatically.

Don't forget to do "sudo apt-get update" before you try to install your required packages.
