I used the ami-c2fd6dab AMI (us-east-1) to build an instance with wowza. I can't figure out how to SSH in to the ec2 instance with the wowza user, is that even possible? I SSH in using ec2-user and the .pem file that AWS generated for me. But I can't use that identity, or figure out how to use a password.
When I log in as ec2-user I try to start and stop the server, but get permission denied errors:
This doesn't look like it's really restarting the server.
