Amazon S3 Uploads
Connection to S3 failed. Plugin not active. (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I tried to configure the S3 plugin with the key and the secret. Since the error is very generic, I'm not sure what the exact problem is:

    Connection to S3 failed. Plugin not active.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you!

    Once you have received the key & password, go to your AWS Management Console ( https://console.aws.amazon.com/s3/home ) and create a bucket aka folder under the s3 tab to upload everything to. Once created, type the name of the bucket (Folder2) in the Amazon bucket field in this plugin. If Folder2 is a subfolder, input ex. Folder 1/Folder2 in the subdirectory field in the plugin.

    Amazon Bucket Name: Folder2
    Amazon Bucket Subdirectory: Folder1/Folder2

    Then save the changes. This solved the problem for me.
