Installing Monit on AWS

Unfortunately, AWS (ec2) doesn’t come with monit available via:

sudo yum install monit # ain't gunna work on AWS

So we need to do the following:

tar zxvf monit-x.y.z-linux-x64.tar.gz (x.y.z denotes version numbers)
cd monit-x.y.z
cp bin/monit /usr/local/bin/
cp conf/monitrc /etc/

Check it’s running. When running, be sure to use sudo (root):

sudo /usr/local/bin/monit status
