Migrate old uploads to minio

I’m doing somthing like this:

DISCOURSE_S3_BUCKET="abc" DISCOURSE_S3_REGION="minio" DISCOURSE_S3_ACCESS_KEY_ID="abc" DISCOURSE_S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY="abc" DISCOURSE_S3_ENDPOINT="my minio endpoint" rake uploads:migrate_to_s3

However I get the following error:

Please provide the ‘DISCOURSE_S3_CDN_URL’ environment variable

If you don’t want to configure a CDN then you can just put the prefix for the bucket name, I think.

Minio isn’t supported and might not work.


still I get that message

DISCOURSE_S3_BUCKET="test" DISCOURSE_S3_REGION="minio" DISCOURSE_S3_ACCESS_KEY_ID="xxx" DISCOURSE_S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY="xxx" DISCOURSE_S3_ENDPOINT="https://myendpoint.com" DISCOURSE_S3_CDN_URL="test"  rake uploads:migrate_to_s3

I think previously you were able to migrate to digital ocean spaces. I dont know If minio and spaces are the same, but if you are interested and give it a try and support minio on discourse, I can sponsor the job.

In place of the quoted words here above, try using your full CDN url, something like this: "DISCOURSE_S3_CDN_URL=“https://bucket_name.s3.ap-south-1.amazonaws.com/folder_name_if_any”. Also you should replace the word ‘ap-south-1’ with your actual amazon region name.
