Posted under » Ubuntu » AWS on 4 May 2021

There are many ways to install the AWS CLI. There is a windows version and there the ubuntu version

$ sudo apt install awscli

Once installed check the AWS CLI version using below command

$ aws --version
aws-cli/1.18.69 Python/3.8.5 Linux/5.4.0-72-generic botocore/1.16.19

Now you have to go to your AWS profile > My security credentials > and create and generate an AWS Access Key ID. Configure.

$ aws configure
AWS Access Key ID [None]: 1423
AWS Secret Access Key [None]: 43565473
Default region name [None]: ap-southeast-1
Default output format [None]: JSON

Now you have configured your AWS account using AWS CLI.

The AWS CLI stores sensitive credential information that you specify with aws configure in a local file named credentials, in a folder named .aws in your home directory. The less sensitive configuration options that you specify with aws configure are stored in a local file named config, also stored in the .aws folder in your home directory.

You can use this to configure S3.
