HDF5 for AWS EC2


trying to add HDF5 to an AWS EC2 instance I’m building and can’t get the source and CMAKE gzip packages to EC2. Any suggestions and install help?

You didn’t say the OS, I am assuming ubuntu linux here. AWS EC2 has a mandatory SSH access, connecting to an instance is discussed here.

You can upload files or directories with rsync or scp , a typical invocation of scp is:

scp -i ~/.ssh/my-ec2-key.pem hdf5.tar.gz  ubuntu@

note the colon at the end, it refers to $HOME or in this case /home/ubuntu.


Thanks, moving again. I’m using the standard AWS “redhat/CentOS” linux.
