    The answer depends on your needs.

    Option 1. Whole site on cloud storage
    If you are planning to store your whole site (content and media files) in Amazon S3 in order to
    – enjoy instantaneous backup the site to the highly durable cloud,
    – reduce the load on the webserver
    – and increase availability of your data
    at a lower TCO, you will need to setup ClouSE on a non-RDS AWS instance as Amazon RDS today cannot be customized to support 3rd party software.

    You can use any standard MySQL tools to transfer the data between Amazon RDS and Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE).

    Option 2. Media Server
    If you only consider offloading your webserver by moving media files only to Amazon S3 while relying on Amazon RDS to store the website pages, we’ve enabled the Media Server configuration. You can find more details at Advanced deployment configuration with Media Server section of installation instructions.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Hi Rishabh,

    Thank you for your interest in WP2Cloud!

    You need to edit wp-config.php to point your WordPress installation to the MySQL server that has ClouSE installed. If you just want to move media files to cloud storage, you can configure Media Server.
