Disclaimer: I'm only decent with EC2 and Unix commands / Linux administration.
Question: How do you give ec2-user the same permissions as root? I'm tired of sudoing.
I found out that you have to log in to EC2 as "ec2-user". OK, that's fine, except ec2-user doesn't have permissions for a lot of stuff, so I'm always sudoing to install stuff.
I also "su root" after giving root a password with pwd.
There's got to be a better way.
