Configuring an Amazon S3 Storage Provider in WHMCS

You can use Amazon S3™ as your storage provider in WHMCS.

Before you can set this up in WHMCS, you will need to create a bucket to use. For more information, see Setting Up an Amazon S3™ Bucket for WHMCS.

Configure the Storage Provider

To configure your storage provider:

1. Go to Configuration > System Settings > Storage Settings or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > Storage Settings.

2. Select the Configurations tab.

3. Under Add New Configuration, select S3 and click +. Additional configuration options will appear.

4. Enter the Access Key, Access Secret, Bucket, and Region for your Amazon S3 bucket.

5. If you are using an S3-compatible provider that is not Amazon S3, enter an endpoint URL for your provider. Endpoint URLs must begin with https://.

6. Click Save Changes.

If WHMCS is unable to connect, an error message will display. Check your entries and the permissions of your configured API user and try again.
