Hey all, long time no see Used to be quite active here a few years ago.
Anyway, I’m the admin of a relatively small forum. Our backups clock in at under 1GB, and will likely stay that way for the next few years.
I want to set up backups with a cloud provider that’s not tied to my identity, so that I can share login details with other forum owners. This excludes Amazon S3, which is our current solution, tied to my Amazon account. Google Drive would also be a little problematic (would have to create a special account, which requires phone number validation nowadays). Sharing a folder might be another solution, but that would chew up my Google Drive quota.
So is there a free cloud provider for backups that Discourse supports? I’ve spent the last ~15 minutes searching through threads, and it appears most plugins but S3 are deprecated or broken Happy to be wrong and pointed to a working solution.
Also, any ongoing work on building this into Discourse? Is it a lot more complicated than it seems to use Dropbox’s API and upload the latest backup file?
