Troubleshooting Question

Help me understand AWS Linux instance (EC2)

Last Modified: 2020-10-21
We have code on AWS and I was able to connect to it via openSSH.

I get to a directory that code was published to. I think there's a Mongo database as well.

This is what I see. Last line is the code.

What does all this mean?
1. This is a virtual machine on AWS that we have code on?
2. Is this is a Linux box on AWS?
3. If Linux box on AWS....how do we know it's Linux?
4. Last line that shows code...means code was deployed to this directory...correct?
5. Is there a GUI interface? Putty?

What I like about LA Linux Academy is making it easier to understand. Useful comparisons to real-life objects.

>>You should learn the linux command line

Yes, a developer told me that as well. I'm a C# developer thrown into the Linux world. I'll Google for Linux commands. I've seen cheat sheets.

I heard recent windows server releases were GUI-deprived as well. So honing TUI skills is a pre anyway.
