S3 folder (bucket) repository.
Latest release:
95 sites
9 fans
Current versions available: 2

Instead of giving all users access to your complete S3 account, this plugin makes it possible to give teachers and managers access to a specific S3 folder (bucket).

Multiple instances are supported, you only have to create a IAM user who has read access to your S3 bucket (but also to your S3 root folder).

This plugin makes it possible to keep large files completely outside your Moodle installation, these files are served to the students using safe urls (urls that are only accessible for a limited time).

The latest versions are depending on the local_aws plugin.  However, if you want to use the latest sdk version, you will have to use the eWallah version that supports all new regions.

    Hello Pawan,

    uploading a lot of data to a S3 bucket is best done outside Moodle using s3cmd, S3 browser, Cyberduck, FileZilla,....

    Is there a plugin similar to this, but for Azure Blob Storage?

    Hi, we are using Moode 3.6.5 and PHP version is 7.1. When We try to install the plugin, in the package unzipping screen, the entire site stop responding and we get the HTTP error 500 and most of the links stop working. Luckily we were trying this on a test server. We installed different types of plugins (around 10) to test that the issue is not from our system and they worked fine. Can you please let me know if you know any similar issues and how can we resolve it?

    Thank you.

    Hello Mohammed,

    Please read the documentation carefully before installing a plugin, the latest version is depending on the local_aws plugin.
    When you have problems, use the bug report where you can provide full error logs and screenshots to help me solve your problem.

    Managed to resolve the http 500 error. You need to install/upgrade the local plugin AWS first. Then install this plugin.

    When I select a file from S3, it gets downloaded to the moodledata. Is this how should it work? Or should it be served directly from S3?

    Hi Eduardo,

    This is NOT normal, there seems to be a functionality loss in the latest version. This should be fixed this afternoon.

    Hi Renaat,

    Getting error, The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported. What could be the cause? And what could be the solution?

    Hi Renaat,

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful plugin. I could solve the problem. It was S3 config issue. Couple of queries
    1) Not able to find an upload option. Is it again S3 issue? where I can find the Upload option?
    2) I am having multiple separate instances. Is it possible to restrict access for specific repository instance either to a specific course/category or a user group? This would be really helpful.

    The upload option was removed some years ago, it was almost never used and there are multiple tools available who do this job better (no upload limit) and faster (multiple channels without the step to copy the files to your server and move the files away to S3).

    The implementation to restrict access based on user/group/course/category/keyholder was planned from the beginning. After so many years I'm still searching for a way to finance this feature.
