Install Rudder root server on Amazon Linux 2

Amazon Linux 2 is derived from RHEL 7.

Base RHEL 7 is not supported anymore because of missing components, but Amazon Linux 2 provides amazon-linux-extras that contains missing parts.

To install a Rudder Server on Amazon Linux 2 you first need a support access to Rudder downloads with RHEL 7 server access.

Then make sure amazon-linux-extras is installed:

which amazon-linux-extras

If it is not installed, install it:

sudo yum install -y amazon-linux-extras

Finally you need postgresql 11 and openjdk 11 (more recent versions should work too):

amazon-linux-extras install postgresql11 java-openjdk11

Finally, just follow the standard Rudder installation for RHEL/CentOS documentation.
