Amazon S3 for WordPress with CloudFront
Does this upload to S3 alongside WordPress? (5 posts)

    I guess what I'm asking is this: All of the past S3 plugins I've used uploaded to BOTH S3 and /uploads. Does this have the capability to ONLY upload to S3, effectively bypassing the WordPress uploads directory?

    For what I can see in the source code, this plugins mirrors the files in your uploads directory to Amazon S3. It doesn't bypass the directory or remove any of the files there.

    Hi sorry if this is a little bit out of topic. I'm planning to use S3 with this plugin, so is this plugin still good with WP 3.3? No issues at all?

    @Nano, I am running it on 3.3.1 with no issues at all, in network mode. Just use the config.php file option found in the wordpress-s3 folder to set it up transparently.

    I beleive local copies of the files will always have to be stored, at least for a little bit of time, to let curl do its work to get things up to S3, which can have a bit of latency sometimes when uploading files.

    What about large files?I have my site hosted in WPEngine and they don't allow uploads for files bigger than 50MB.

    I tried to upload these files straight in the s3 console but then I can not reach them from WordPress.

    Anyone has found a solution?
