S3 upload: Bypass Discourse local storage



We would like our users to upload files (images specifically but hopefully video later), however since we are running Discourse using Docker, there’s no point in Discourse storing the files locally before the files are sent to S3.

Is there anyway we can bypass Discourse’s local storage and just fire the images off to S3 straight away when someone uploads a file?

No. The upload handling would have to be significantly reworked to go straight to S3.


Hi Andrew,

Great, thanks for your reply!
