Minio instead of S3?

Has anyone tried to use minio instead of S3 storage?

Minio is a distributed object storage server compatible with Amazon S3, but I don’t know what that means in relation to discourse…


I think it means that it won’t work, at the moment:


As of today, two more S3 compatible alternatives can be used:

  1. DigitalOcean Spaces
  1. Minio S3


Just wanted to check for the settings page in our admin page, under S3, would that only be applicable to AWS S3?

No, see here


Thanks @md-misko, just to be sure we are talking about the same things, I was referring to this page. But of course, I can always go the manual way with adding the configurations as stated in the link you provided.

Yes, those are the same S3 settings, but it is preferable to set them directly in app.yml. This way they will be shadowed (i.e. not visible in Web UI) which will prevent other admins to change them inadvertently.

Please use caution when dealing with S3 (use staging environment to test extensively), as this is advanced configuration and cannot be reverted easily.


Thanks a ton @md-misko
