Configure Next3 Offload Media

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

You must first specify the bucket that Next3 Offload Media should use in order to begin offloading recently uploaded media files to Amazon S3. The setup page for Next3 Offload Media allows you to create a bucket for usage with the service.

select provider

You can enter the name of the bucket you’ve previously made and click the “Save Bucket Setting” button.

The “Create New Bucket” link will take you to a form where you can enter the bucket’s name and region if you haven’t already done it.

select provider

You can also “Browse Existing Buckets” if you haven’t restricted your IAM User’s access to list buckets.

select provider

Regardless of how you specify the bucket, once saved, Next3 Offload Media will be set up to offload newly-uploaded media to the bucket with some recommended default settings.

Protect Your Amazon S3 Bucket from Public Access

The bucket will have been configured correctly for serving media via raw S3 URLs if you created it using Next3 Offload Media. In the Bucket part of the settings, you should see “Block All Public Access Disabled”.

select provider

Note: After save bucket setting, must be refresh this page.

MPORTANT:I There is also a Block public access (account settings) page that can be accessed from the Amazon S3 sidebar that can also be used to disable public access to objects in all existing and new buckets. If the AWS account is relatively new, or someone has visited this settings page and turned on the blocking of public access, you may need to visit the page, click “Edit”, clear the “Block all public access” checkbox, and then save the changes.

If you have used Next3 Offload Media’s “Disable Block All Public Access” button but it does not seem to have worked, or you receive “Access Denied” error messages, please visit that Block public access (account settings) page in the AWS Console.
