AWS S3 - moving my content to the cloud

February 2016 ยท 1 minute read

Yes it is true, you can be even more AWS fixated, yes it is true indeed. This is merely a test and I wanted to see if it works. If it does, it will be a nice step forward.

To do so I can full heartily recommend the plugins Amazon Web Services and Amazon S3 and Cloudfront.

It is pretty simple create an user in the IAM of AWS, add a policy (they plugin author suggest to use

{
 "Version": "2012-10-17",
 "Statement": [
 {
 "Effect": "Allow",
 "Action": "s3:*",
 "Resource": "*"
 }
 ]
}

Of course you can get as fancy as you want to. Then it is as simple as following the on screen instructions.

I suggest to create a DNS entry pointing to the static website s3 bucket, to make the URL look nice.
