Who has got Interworx to work with Amazon AWS?

[SIZE=2]If so, which of the 4 OS flavours did you choose? Did you need to do anything special?

On a fresh install on any of the 4 flavors i do the normal interworx install “sh <((curl -sL interworx.com/inst.sh))-l” but have always had fails.

Even the RedHad 6.6 Ent, it fails to install gd-devel.

Anyone have some documentation/write up?[/SIZE]

Hi icer

Have you read this post.


I hope that helps and sorry, we use centos

Many thanks


hi d2.

I have read that and it shows it should work on redhat ent 6 which is apart of AWS. The IP issue is not the issue i am having.

On a fresh redhat instance, after a yum update i use the interworx install cli command sh <((curl -sL interworx.com/inst.sh)) and get stuck at installing gd-devel as the install breaks. Somehow need to ignore it or skip it.

Just fyi, here is the breakdown on a fresh redhat ent 6.

Hi icer

Sorry, I thought you were using AWS.

You need to activate the rhel server optional software channel to be able to install gd-devel for rhel.

Subscription-manager repos \ --enable=rhel-6-server-rh-common-rpms, if on rhel 7, change 6 to a 7

subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-6-server-rpms

Also, if your only installing on rhel, then you can open a support ticket with your licence supplier, but if using AWS in any flavour, you could try to ask through support, but it maybe refused.

I know IW guys rock and try their best to help where possible.

Failing all the above, you could try manually installing gd-devel after downloading rpms.

I hope that helps

Many thanks


unfortunatly that also didnt work or help.

]# subscription-manager repos \ --enable=rhel-6-server-rh-common-rpms
cannot parse argument: --enable=rhel-6-server-rh-common-rpms
]# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-6-server-rpms
Error: rhel-6-server-rpms is not a valid repo ID. Use --list option to see valid repos.

Surely someone uses the free tier AWS server (amazon or any of the linux versions) with interworx / demo. I dont need to use Redhat. Happy to use anything as long as it all works.

Im surprised it hasn’t caught on.

Hi icer

Sorry, my commands maybe wrong, doing from memory, but you should be able to find the exact commands from rhel website.

We use centos 6.6, and have always used centos from the start, which we have never had issues with.

Many thanks


Got Interworx on AWS working

Hey Guys, i got Interworx on AWS working.

Here are the 3 things you need to do.

  1. Attach an elastic IP address to the EC2 server.

  2. make sure port 2443 is open

  3. do license registration via command line and register the IP as the IP private EC2 IP (it works even though its an internal IP :confused:)

Hi inodecloud

Excellent many thanks

Please could I ask if you saw the gd-devel issue as posted earlier on this thread, if so, how did you overcome it

Many thanks


Hi John,

If you use the CentOS7 image you wont face any gd-devel issues, otherwise you will probably need to install it from RPM.

Go To EC2 > Community AMIs > search for “CENTOS 7” and select “CentOS 7 (x86_64) with Updates HVM”

Thank you for such an herculean solution. Totally agreed with the concept. It really worked for me.
