I'm having problems with EC2 in the Amazon Cloud.

My steps:

  • I have a symlink to the S3 in /var/www/html
  • I update my code and upload the code with git aws.push in my environment (var/www/html)
  • Thereafter, the symlink is gone.

I'm looking for the symlink at this point.

I don't know for sure but I'm going to guess the git aws.push redeploys that directory by wiping it out and replacing it (as opposed to, say, running a git pull). Git allows you to version control symlinks. You might try adding it to the repo, even though it will be broken locally.
