Props to yii-cdn-asset-management-library
This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later.
To install the plugin, follow these instructions.
Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:
Then tell Composer to load the plugin:
composer require servd/craft-remote-assets
In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Craft Remote Assets.
Craft Remote Assets Overview
In a load balanced environment with multiple PHP servers you can't serve Yii bundles or thumbnails from the local file system. This plugin publishes CP bundles and asset thumbnails to S3 instead. Tested in a multi-PHP, single nginx K8s cluster with no volume mounts.
Configuring Craft Remote Assets
Create a file at
config/craft-remote-assets.php which looks like this:
<?php return [ 'use' => 's3Config', 's3Config' => [ 'region' => 'eu-west-1', 'bucket' => 'yourbucketname', 'root' => 'defaultKeyPrepend', 'key' => 's3APIKey', 'secret' => 's3APISecret' ], 'gsConfig' => [ 'bucket' => 'yourbucketname', 'root' => 'defaultKeyPrepend', 'projectId' => 'yourProjectId', 'keyFilePath' => '/path/to/serviceworker/creds/file.json' ] ];
Your S3 API key will need to be linked to an IAM user with bucket read and write permissions.
Your Google Cloud cred sfile will need to belong to a service worker with read and write access to the bucket
