This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Amazon Web Services


This plugin allows the user to define AWS access keys and allows other plugins to hook into it and use the AWS SDK that’s included.

The plan was for this plugin to be a dependency of several plugins and all could use the same AWS SDK. We realized however that there are problems with this idea and we’ve taken another approach.

This plugin was used by our plugins (WP Offload S3 and WP Offload S3 Lite) but it is almost certainly used by other plugins we’re not aware of. So although it is no longer needed for our plugins, we’ll leave it here for others.

This plugin is great for connecting to your AWS account for other services to use it. Some usability issues could be better, some errors on install and activate with certain versions, but if you’re up to date it should work great.

I am very impressed with this plugin, and I am using only the free version along with its companion WP Offload S3. I like how they are transparent – you don’t even realize it is there and behaves as if you were saving everything locally. There have been a few bugs here and there, but the team addresses them quickly.
