Amazon S3 – How To Create Buckets, Upload Data, Set Permissions
Amazon S3 Video Series
In the first video of this series, we saw how to set up an Amazon S3 account.
this video we learn how to create buckets, upload data and set permissions to make our selected files public.
Once you have logged into your S3 account, you’ll find a sidebar on your left and at the very top is a “create bucket” button.
When you click the button, it will open a dialog box in the middle of your screen and offer you options.
One option is to pick a name.
Now when you pick a name, you’ll have to pick something unique to Amazon S3. All names are checked against the entire S3 database for duplication. That means if someone else has used the file name you will have to come up with something else.
S3 will suggest you use a company name as a prefix or something unique to you or your company as you search for a bucket name.
Once you have a bucket name, the ne In xt thing is to select a “region” that corresponds to your own geographic location or that closely matches the area from which you will be doing most of your business.
This has to do with where the data will be stored and where it will be served to maximize speed and minimize load times.
When you have a name and region picked out, click the “create” button on the lower right corner of the dialog box and your bucket is created.
