    Hi! I've bought this addon and created a S3 account. I have also generated a secret key...but when i try to add the lines on my installation, i see an error. Seems not correctly installed.

    I need to have the attach in my subdomain and i have a "only https site", i have to extra settings to have this on my site?

    Should be fairly simple, something like below:

    PHP:
    $config['bdDataStorage'] = array(
        array(
            
    'type' => 's3',
            
    'key' => 'xxx',
            
    'secret' => 'xxx',
            
    'bucket' => 'xxx',
            
    'region' => 'us-east-1',
            
    'url' => 'https://sub.domain.com',
        ),
    );

    Also, I noticed you mentioned "have the attach in my subdomain", this add-on only handle attachment thumbnail. The actual attachment files are put in /internal_data and they are not managed by this add-on.

    I know, i mean that i want to use my subdomain like in XFRocks and not the amazon site url. ;-)

    Yes, you can use your subdomain, just enter the subdomain (sub.domain.com) as the bucket name and put the url as in my example ;)

    And for the SSL? Is i understood you have to upload the cert on Amazon

    For SSL certificate, as far as I know, Amazon doesn't allow you to upload your custom cert to their server. I worked around this for my site by using CloudFlare Pro as CDN.

    When i create the subdomain that will have the avatars, i have to point it to the data directory? I have seen your howto, i can't use the CNAME method with Godaddy (he ask me to point a IP and doesn't accept the amazon Url).

    Please note that the link you quoted is for a different add-on.

    And you should be able to create a new CNAME record with GoDaddy, I found this tutorial http://webdeveloperpadawan.blogspot.com/2012/01/assigning-your-godaddy-domain-name-to.html (sorry I don't use GoDaddy myself).

    I know, i just know how to "sync" my subdomain with the Amazon bucket...Thanks for the links, i will read it.

    Can i use Cloudfront istead of S3 with this addon?

    You can use CloudFront with S3 with this add-on. Just configure the domain in CloudFront correctly and enter the CloudFront url in the url field for config.php.

    The problem is that i run a website with HTTPS and i have to switch to Pro to have the SSL support :/

    However, i tried to follow the guide but the addon it's not working now..all avatar disappear when i try to enable it.

    Yes, Pro is required for HTTPS support. I have to upgrade my CloudFlare account for it.

    Have you uploaded all the avatars to S3 before turning it on?

    I think this can be resolved easily if you send me the server info (FTP + admin access) via conversation ;)
