Hi,
I've put together a detailed tutorial called
"How To Use Amazon S3 Storage & DLGuard Together".
It turned out to be 9 pages and way too long to post in here.
So, I created a PDF document and posted it in a private area on my site. You can download it free, no optin, no obligation, no strings. I am only looking to help fellow members, nothing more.
Just click the download link on the page and download to your computer.

I've been using S3 and the Cloudfront successfully without any problems.
I will create a part 2 tutorial about integrating the Cloudfront in the near future.

Thanks and Good Luck!
David V

Everything looks good.
Somehow must have been an error or a corruption when you downloaded it.
It's a straight PDF and not zipped, so make sure you Right Click and "save link as" or "save target as" to download. Only if you have the pdf firefox plugin should you left click the link.

Try downloading again. I did on 4 different browsers and 3 different computers without a problem.
Let me know.

David

I checked again..and it is the pdf reader that I normally use. Foxit reads everything, but not the DLGS3tutorial apparently.

In the adobe reader there is no problem.

One of these little digital mysteries Wink

Sorry for the disturbance.

Hi David,

That was a good read.
Very clear instructions.
I am looking forward to the Cloudberry tutorial!

A question:

So where do you place the robot.txt file?
What do you put inside the robot file?

Thanks

Thanks!

The robots file goes into the root, basically your buckets. Does not need to go into subfolders. The robots file will block the robots the moment they enter the bucket. (legitimate bots)
Put this inside the robots.txt file:



User-agent: *
Disallow: /



That's it.
make sure you name it "robots.txt" not "robot.txt".
I'll update the pdf tutorial to reflect this info as well.

TIP: to test your robots file use google webmaster.
http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=156449

There are more advanced techniques, and I'll be getting into those with future tuts.

Thanks David

Hi David,

There is another question, now about CNAME.

(1) In my cPanel [Hostmonster], I first have to select a domain before I can fill in the Name and the CNAME.

So should I take the domain where I've installed DLG?

(2) When I go to my initial bucket and generate the weburl, to be inserted in CNAME, I get something like "myfiles2010.s3.amazonaws.com".

This is different from "myfiles2010.yoursite.com.s3.amazonaws.com", that you mention on page 7.

I use Cloudberry btw.

Thanks for your help Cool

Hi,
Really apologize for the confusion and thanks for pointing this out!
I did have a typo there. I will amend the tut for everyone. In the meantime I'll clarify a bit.
You can name your bucket whatever you like, can be "myfiles2010" or
"myfiles2020.yoursite.com"
1)you would have to select a domain
2) The generated url in our example, your right, would be
"myfiles2010.s3.amazonaws.com"

I accidentally typo'd the "yoursite.com" in there. Typically when people name a bucket they use their domain name in it to it's unique across the amazon network. I just got lucky that myfiles2010 was available when I did the tut, but my brain still had the domain attached!

So, when your creating your cname, yes, just put in the original base url from amazon, then name it: "myfiles2010" (whatever your bucket name is) The cname created will have your domain on the end, "myfiles2010.yoursite.com", that's your new url

I will clear this up in the tut and re-upload it, my bad!

David Shocked
