Installation steps to only keep uploads on Cloud Storage

In case you are interested only in uploading media files to cloud, please follow WP2Cloud installation instructions listed below.

Please note that WP2Cloud plugin relies on Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE) for MySQL to enable integration with cloud storage.

To install and configure ClouSE please refer to these steps:

Amazon S3

  1. Sign up for an AWS account.
  2. Create an S3 bucket if you don't have one.
  3. Install and configure ClouSE.

Google Cloud Storage

  1. Sign up for Google Cloud Storage.
  2. Enable Interoperable Access.
  3. Create a bucket if you don't have one.
  4. Install and configure ClouSE.

Note that you need to use ClouSE 1.0b.1.5 or later to work with Google Cloud Storage.

Once ClouSE is installed and configured, you can now activate WP2Cloud plugin:

  1. You can download and install WP2Cloud using the built-in WordPress plugin installer. If you download WP2Cloud manually, unpack and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. WP2Cloud requires the Cloud Storage Engine for MySQL (ClouSE) to be installed and configured on the MySQL server. If ClouSE is not installed, WP2Cloud will fail to activate.
  2. In your WordPress administration, go to the Plugins page.
  3. Activate the WP2Cloud plugin.

Now all new media files are going to be uploaded to the cloud.

Your website can gain higher availability and scalability!

Optional: to configure the plugin to use a Content Distribution Network (CDN), go to the WordPress to Cloud Settings page and specify the Cloud Distribution URL. The CDN must be configured to use the cloud storage bucket as a content origin.

  • ClouSE 1.0b.1.1 or above

Advanced deployment configuration with Media Server

If you don't have permissions to install the Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE) on the MySQL server that stores your WordPress database, you can configure WP2Cloud to use a separate Media Server. The Media Server makes it possible to use cloud storage to store and serve media files, while keeping your existing database solution to store website content.

To use a Media Server, first install and configure a MySQL server with ClouSE. After the Media Server is up and running, create a database for WP2Cloud on your Media Server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.

Edit wp-config.php and fill in the Media Server database configuration into the MEDIA_DB_* settings (similar to the DB_* settings):

// ** MySQL media server settings ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress media files */
define('MEDIA_DB_NAME', 'putyourdbnamehere');

/** MySQL database username */
define('MEDIA_DB_USER', 'usernamehere');

/** MySQL database password */
define('MEDIA_DB_PASSWORD', 'yourpasswordhere');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('MEDIA_DB_HOST', 'localhost');
