Copies files to Amazon S3 as they are uploaded to the Media Library. Optionally configure Amazon CloudFront for faster delivery.
It's straightforward, clean and a breeze to install and set-up.
There's plenty of information about S3 and CloudFront online (in general; or via AWS itself).
I'm glad development for this had continued (from the previous iterations), and especially because this time it's looking like it's for the long haul. Please keep up the fine work.
The plugin works great. I am looking forward to the pro version. It is incredible to see the media urls change automatically
The only issue that I faced was that there is no documentation on how to Setup AWS so that the plugin works. There are a few blog posts so it is not impossible.
The only small complaint is the "blank" settings page once the AWS access keys have been added.
I've installed this plugin for basically all my WordPress sites as it allows you to completely store the actual content of your site in a separate location. It also relieves your php server from heaving to serve up all those PDF files and images. The plugin is a bit technical and requires an understanding of AWS. You may also need to setup some extra settings but the creators have done great deal of effort in making it easy to understand. You can also store important bucket settings in wp-config.php so it also works well in cases where you have separate development, acceptance and production environments and don't want all the settings in your database.
I installed and had the plugin working within 10 minutes, including pasting the code into the config file. Very easy and straight forward if you have an FTP client and text editor.
My AWS account had already been set up so i just grabbed my keys and pasted them in. Looking forward to the PRO Version.
but i would need a better upload solution in wp ;)
What a perfect little plugin. I really enjoy when I don't have to write something from scratch. Works just as intended, and friendly support to boot.
I was looking for the best solution to deliver fast content with my websites... THIS PLUGIN WORKS PERFECTLY !
Can't wait for the PRO VERSION, that i'll buy with a big smile.
Working great with the regeneratw thumnail plugin when images are already on you website. The transfer is automatic.
In french, it would be a phrase like this " Une pure merveille ", " A Great One !"
Very useful and with a great support!
I looked everywhere for a solution that would send my media to S3 storage AND allow Amazon CloudFront to serve it, and each review I read or google result I followed said to try W3TotalCache - but W3TC only does one or the other. This plugin, however, does BOTH - and does it very well with only minor limitations that they are planning to release in a Pro version.
To anyone having issues with content uploading to Amazon S3 (as mentioned in the reviews) make sure you add the permission for "authenticated users" to your bucket, and remove any unnecessary bucket policies as mine caused issues initially. THEN, regenerate all image files or run them through a batch image optimization program, which will trigger existing images to copy to S3. All new images automatically go to S3.
**I would NOT suggest enabling the option to delete local content after S3 upload until you know for sure that it's working perfectly for you.
