I've been asked to edit the html of a splash screen on a static temporary site for a client (its super simple). I have full access to the AWS portal where the instance is hosted but appear to be unable to access the instance as I do not have the .pem.
It is presently not possible to contact the former dev of the site.
Is there anything I can do to gain access to the VM so that I might inspect the contents and work out what I need to change?
I did try to create an AMI from that instance but when I request the password its now telling me:
Instances launched from a custom AMI will inherit the User and Password of the AMI's parent instance
Is there anything I can do outside of completely recreating the site????
