Driver Configuration

Add the following configurations:

  • Bucket: The name of your AWS S3 bucket

  • Region: The region of your bucket (avoid dots in the bucket name)

  • Key and secret key of your AWS account (optional, you can also use IAM roles or environment variables)

  • Public base url (optional): this is the public url of your bucket, if empty its default to ""

  • Default cache header: max-age in seconds (optional) - Please Notice: AWS S3 set the cache header only once - while uploading / creating or copy the file.

  • Protocol: network protocol (https://, http:// or auto detection)

  • Signature: Here you can set the signature manually to "Version 4" - "auto" should usually work

Example configuration:
