Enable SSH without Password on Ubuntu/Linux on AWS

Here’s what I did on a Ubuntu EC2

A) Login as root using the keypairs (ssh -i key.pem ubuntu@hostname.aws.com)

B) Setup the necessary users and their passwords with
# adduser

C) Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config setting
PasswordAuthentication yes

D) Restart the sshd with
# sudo service sshd restart
