**Note: This is for Amazon Web Services **

So I am testing out my UNIX script that I wrote for an instance so it can already have the pre-configured packages and httpd service start. When I input the data in the desired field
"User Data:", it doesn't work. I've tried inputting my Unix code as either a text or a file and neither has worked for me.

This is essentially the script I am writing for the instance(below) and will be more complicated as I incorporate downloading war files from Maven and Jboss.

Admins/top users: Do you see the problem here? When I run these commands manually in Mindterm, it executes perfectly, but when I put it in the "User Data" field it doesn't execute anything. Please help me resolve this. Thanks in advance! Also, this is for the Amazon Linux AMI 2013.03.1 64-bit


sudo yum update

sudo su

sudo yum -y install httpd mysql mysql-server tomcat* java* apache* git

sudo chkconfig httpd on
/etc/init.d/httpd start

tar xvfz jboss-as-web-7.0.2.Final.tar.gz
tar xvfz apache-maven-2.2.1-bin.tar.gz

sudo yum -y update

echo "script is finished"
