Amazon AWS / S3 for file uploads
@andrew I would love a chance to work on this in my available time. This and the same with email.
Some work began on this but it has stalled. I'd like to write up a roadmap doc for it for interested parties at some point.
That makes it very hard to control where files are being served from. If all the files were to go through the download_file single page or a tool, that would make this a lot easier.
Hope I explained this well enough.
Basically, have any requests to /files/x.ext redirect to /filemanager.php?x.ext.
Then, filemanager could serve the Amazon version of the file.
I'm just speculating here, so feel free to shoot holes in it.
Anything useful there?
Making symlinks can cause problems, especially if they are disabled on the server.
The s3fs (s3 file server) enables an s3 bucket that has been mounted to the machine instance and mapped to the files directory to actually serve the files. This according to Amazon's tech support. Though nobody can state whether it will be successful with Concrete5 as the only real experience has been with Drupal.
Any foreseeable roadblock ahead?
