• i am getting this error after following the delicious brains tutorial on setting up offload media.

    Access Denied to Bucket — Looks like we don’t have write access to this bucket. It’s likely that the user you’ve provided access keys for hasn’t been granted the correct permissions. Please see our Quick Start Guide for instructions on setting up permissions correctly.

    iv’e gone though a million tutorials on setting up permissions, but nothing will fix the error

    We see this problem with buckets created through the AWS Console rather than WP Offload Media itself.

    AWS have recently introduced “Public access settings” for objects in the bucket, which stops permissions on objects from being changed if the settings are turned on. WP Offload Media needs to be able to change the permissions on objects (not buckets), so “Public access settings” needs to be disabled.




    I am having this problem as of 4/24/19, and have deleted and re-done everything per the instructions (new user, buckets (done form inside plugin, not from console), etc.)

    “Access Denied” is on the settings page and the plugin doesn’t work 🙁
