    Hi,

    Testing this very promising project. As I RTFM, just created a lighstail VM (1 vCPU / 2 Gb) but the launch script gives a “ss : permission denied” even after adding sudo (logged in as ubuntu).
    What do I do wrong ?
    Best regards.

    I seem to remember sudo issues with Lightsail because their default sudo user is called ubuntu but I can’t remember what the fix was for ss lol

    maybe you can manually add the sudo user that SlickStack will use from ss-config and then try to run installer again?

    AWS is a nightmare for usability, they never follow industry standards!

    I know but this was specifically installed in Lightsail, not AWS per se, and it is listed as a good hosting option.

    You can try to manually create (and modify as desired) your /var/www/ss-config file first, then manually add your sudo user.

    Note: You might also need to manually run sudo mkdir -p /var/www beforehand.

    After your ss-config exists, and sudo user exists, you can download the installer to your /tmp/ directory and try running it like this:

    cd /tmp/
    sudo wget -O ss slick.fyi/ss
    sudo bash /tmp/ss

    If you’re wondering how to manually create/modify your ss-config file:

    sudo wget -O /tmp/ss-config https://mirrors.slickstack.io/bash/ss-config-sample.txt

    Then do sudo nano /tmp/ss-config and edit as desired.

    Then do sudo cp /tmp/ss-config /var/www/ss-config after ready.

    And again, you might need to manually run sudo mkdir -p /var/www before this to ensure the www directory exists properly.

    You can also try rebooting the Lightsail server after you manually create your sudo user and before doing the other steps here.

    FYI, Lightsail is no longer recommended by SlickStack. Latest versions of Lightsail have new user/file permissions issues seems.

    Update:

    According to recent user reports on our Discord server, AWS Lightsail now has file/user permissions issues with SlickStack out-of-the-box and may require some tinkering to get it working.

    Previously SlickStack had recommended only Lightsail out of the various AWS servers, but now even Lightsail is having problems.
