  1. Short question: is it possible that Processwire uses AWS S3 with s3fs as a remote file system(mount to asset folder)? Please advise anything that have to be take care of. Background: I am currently trying to make Processwire running inside AWS Beanstalk as I want to take advantages of the auto scaling function that my client wanted. I have found a discussion here: By reading this and the link inside, I realize that to use the auto scaling I need to configure my web server to be stateless. So, I was looking for a method that can serve the purpose and then I found s3fs. s3fs is a FUSE filesystem that allows you to mount an Amazon S3 bucket as a local filesystem, quoted from their github. I guess that mounting s3 bucket using s3fs to the asset folder should be the right thing to do. My site needs many image upload as it is an e-commerce site using padloper while the admin always using the local file system for images. I have thought of using modules like AmazonS3Cloudfront or FieldtypeFileS3. It seems like those modules are not support my use case. s3fs suits better and more simple. One of my concerns is that I am not sure can the URL of the images can be generated by the default API like $image->url correctly. Before implementing this, I would like to ask the advise from anyone having implemented this with processwire as I am new to AWS. Is it possible? Any better alternatives? I think if not implementing auto scaling, it is also good to separate asset away in some cases, like reducing requests. Thank you for your reading.
