Ok. Then that means you didn't set the variable you think you did, or set
it in the right place. You didn't really specify what you did, but this is
just a Linux issue.

I don't know what they use (I've never logged into an Amazon Linux shell
or looked at what they do), but if there is no such file/tree for
configuring services, then you would have to have some other place to set

Editing init scripts is basically frowned on in Linux, so that's why the
sysconfig tree was created, but you can always ultimately just set it in
the init script you will need to create (because the RPM won't give you
that either for an unsupported platform, I'm guessing).
