The AWS SDK for PHP enables PHP developers to easily work with Amazon Web Services and build scalable solutions with Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Glacier, and more. You can get started in minutes by installing the SDK through Composer or by downloading a single zip or phar file.


Getting Started

  1. Sign up for AWS – Before you begin, you need an AWS account. Please see the Signing Up for AWS section of the user guide for information about how to create an AWS account and retrieve your AWS credentials.
  2. Minimum requirements – To run the SDK you will need PHP 5.3.3+ compiled with the cURL extension and cURL 7.16.2+ compiled with OpenSSL and zlib. For more information about the requirements and optimum settings for the SDK, please see the Requirements section of the user guide.
  3. Install the SDK – Using Composer is the recommended way to install the AWS SDK for PHP. The SDK is available via Packagist under the aws/aws-sdk-php package. Please see the Installation section of the user guide for more detailed information about installing the SDK through Composer and other means (e.g., Phar, Zip, PEAR).
  4. Using the SDK – The best way to become familiar with how to use the SDK is to read the User Guide. The Quick Start Guide will help you become familiar with the basic concepts, and there are also specific guides for each of the supported services.

Quick Example

Upload a File to Amazon S3


require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Aws\Common\Aws;
use Aws\S3\Enum\CannedAcl;
use Aws\S3\Exception\S3Exception;

// Instantiate an S3 client
$s3 = Aws::factory('/path/to/config.php')->get('s3');

// Upload a publicly accessible file. The file size, file type, and MD5 hash are automatically calculated by the SDK
try {
        'Bucket' => 'my-bucket',
        'Key'    => 'my-object',
        'Body'   => fopen('/path/to/file', 'r'),
        'ACL'    => CannedAcl::PUBLIC_READ
} catch (S3Exception $e) {
    echo "There was an error uploading the file.\n";
