Does an ec2 web server located in a autoscaling group need to have its files mounted on an EFS volume or is their another option?

I want to move my web servers to AWS using LAMP stack on ec2 instances. If I put my ec2 instances into an auto scaling group can I still have my site files located on the ec2 instances itself? The reason I am asking is that I want to setup a webhook from github to the production files located on the ec2 instances but I dont know if this will work if I put the servers into an auto scaling group. Is the only solution to host the site files on an EFS volume auto mounted to the ec2 instances like shown here? https://docs.amazonaws.cn/en_us/efs/latest/ug/wt2-apache-web-server.html#wt2-apache-web-server-auto-scale-group
