Continuing the discussion from S3 Upload with Vanity Domains:
I have some questions!
1: I am running out of space on my droplet because of uploads, so I want to use S3 for my uploads.
I might have missed something, but in the S3 documentation:
Because Amazon S3 sees only the original host name
www.example.comand is unaware of the CNAME mapping used to resolve the request, the CNAME and the bucket name must be the same.
But in the discourse settings in “s3 upload bucket” it says “must be lowercase, no periods, no underscores.” - and it won’t let you save the bucket name. I can see that there is an “s3 cdn url” to put the vanity name - but I don’t get how I am supposed to set it up.
2: When I get it to work - will Discourse move all my existing images to S3 or do I have to do something?
Thanks in advance!
