module FieldtypeFileS3 - store files on AWS S3
fbg13 posted a topic in Modules/PluginsFieldtypeFileS3 https://github.com/f-b-g-m/FieldtypeFileS3 The module extends the default FieldtypeFile and InputfieldFile modules and adds few extra methods. For the most part it behaves just like the default files modules, the biggest difference is how you get the file's url. Instead of using $page->fieldname->eq(0)->url you use $page->fieldname->eq(0)->s3url(). Files are not stored locally, they are deleted when the page is saved, if page saving is ommited the file remains on the local server until the page is saved. Another difference is the file size, the default module get the file size directly from the local file, while here it's stored in the database. There is an option to store the files locally, its intented in case one wants to stop using S3 and change back to local storage. What it does is it changes the s3url() method to serve files from local server instead of S3, disables uploading to S3 and disables local file deletion on page save. It does not tranfer files from S3 to local server, that can be done with the aws-cli's through the sync function. Files stored on S3 have the same structure as they would have on the local server. -------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------- Been struggling with this for quite a while, but i think i finally managed to make it work/behave the way i wanted. All feedback is welcome!
Processwire with AWS S3 and s3fs
Karl_T posted a topic in General SupportShort 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.
Getting Amazon AWS SDK to work with PW
artaylor posted a topic in General SupportHi all, I am trying to use Amazon S3 to store video files for a client. I am having trouble getting the SDK to work. I am sure it is a stupid error on my part but my head is sore from banging it against my desk and I thought I would finally ask for some help. I am running PW 3.0.11 on NGINX. 1. Amazon recommends using Composer to install the SDK. I was not sure where in the path to install the SDK so I put composer in the /site folder and installed the SDK there (putting vendor at the same level as modules), then I put the require and uses statements in _init.php. I always got an error saying it could not load the aws or s3 classes from the library. 2. So, then I tried to use aws.phar. I put that in the /site directory but once again, no matter what I do, it will not load with the following error: require(): Failed opening required '/site/aws.phar' The file is there with proper permissions and the code for loading is: // --- amazon S3 stuff require $config->urls->site . 'aws.phar'; $s3 = new Aws\S3\S3Client([ 'version' => 'latest', 'region' => 'us-standard', ]); So, here are my questions: 1. In general, where is the correct place to put a php library? It is not a PW module so I assume it should not go in the modules folder. 2. Should I use Composer to install the SDK? If so, where do I put the files? Should I add the AWS SDK to the main composer.json file or put it somewhere else? 3. If I don't use Composer, where do I put the aws.phar file so that PW can load it? 4. Should I not put the 'require' in the _init.php file and move it to another file (_func.php)? I am sure there is a massive face-palm in my future when this gets sorted out. Thanks
