Is it possible to go straight to CDN bypassing any writes to wp-content? (6 posts)

    I've got a situation in which I'm running a WordPress installation in which I'm disallowing WordPress to write to the server. I'd like to be able to use some of the uploading capabilities in the media manager. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck connecting directly to a CDN (ie. Amazon S3) to manage media files (wp-content) bypassing any writes to the server?

    In a practical situation I'd like to emulate the capabilities of W3 Total Cache's CDN integration (uploading/syncing to S3/Cloudflare etc.) without the need to write to the server.

    I already realize there will be some issues with the image libraries, and resizing, thumbnailing, etc.., but if anyone has done something similar or know of a plugin that's been known for this capability, I'd love to hear about it.

    Why do you not want a local cache of your files?

    It's just a project requirement; multiple locked down IIS servers, no write access, no method to sync files across servers in real time.

    I see, well I'm sorry the plugin doesn't support that use case. You would have to hack something.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply to this. I was just looking around to see if it was theoretically possible to run some of the media uploader capabilities strait through to S3/CDN. Love your plugin though, and use it on many of my projects!
