Last week I signed up for the Alpha for the S3 thing and was able to backup a test Discourse instance to a bucket I created (mostly following the Duplicati instructoins) and it worked like a charm.
Today I signed up for the Beta test (which I guess is a totally difeferent account?)
Do I need to use the CLI to create a bucket in the beta but in the alpha it just worked?
EDIT2: oh! I got
s3cmd to work and it can see both of my buckets!! I’m back to being pretty excited.
EDIT: but then I used the access and secret keys that I created and it let me use the same bucket name that I used last week with the alpha program and then I just made up another name, and I pushed data there too.
So I don’t have to create a bucket with the cli? So maybe I should be using the AWS s3 CLI to create my buckets?
But the two buckets that I pushed data to don’t show up in the web interface, which still says “create your first bucket to get started”.
I’m quite confused.
