Amazon S3 is not a file system. You cannot just mount it to your EC2 instance like a regular disk or EBS. It now follows that a symlink is not possible. You can however use s3fs to mount your S3 bucket as a directory in your EC2 server. I used this tutorial and I was able to successfully mount my S3 to my EC2 running on Ubuntu 14.04.

@MichaelHampton is right. But I would probably not use an USB stick but a printed sheet of paper in a sealed envelope. In the scenario of a lost smartphone and missing Google Authenticator it might not be that relevant, but often in case of an emergency there are several things going wrong. And reading a sheet of paper will nearly always be possible. Seal ...

Try using s3-cli instead of s3cmd. I used it instead of s3cmd to upload files to my s3 bucket and it made my deployment faster almost by 17 minutes (from 21 to 4 minutes)! Here's the link : https://github.com/andrewrk/node-s3-cli

cron runs under root user, make sure your root user has s3cmd configuration otherwise copy them for root user cp -i /home/ubuntu/.s3cfg /root/.s3cfg
