AWS User


Using the AWS Image, what user should I be using when installing Python modules? Is everything owned by the user KNIME? Am I missing something, I don’t know what the credentials for this user is or do I need to create a new user and change permissions.


Hi Craig,

For the KNIME Server instances: Login user for the instances is ubuntu. That user has the ability to assume the privileges of the knime user who owns the installation. You can do that with the command: ‘sudo su knime’

For newer AWS images they use anaconda python (not the system python). See /home/knime/python for the install details.

Hi Jon,

Sorry! Totally forgot about it being all in Anaconda. All resolved now.
