To upload files to a Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket and apply appropriate permissions.
Table of Contents
You can select Add Files... to browser for files or drag and drop files from your system into your S3 bucket.
By default, each file that is uploaded will have its permissions set as private.
A 'private' file will only be accessible to resources of the same AWS Account. In order to retrieve a 'private' file, you will need to pass your AWS Access Key ID and AWS Secret Access Key. (In future tutorials, where a script is run on a Server to retrieve an object in an S3 bucket, Credentials that RightScale has automatically created for your account (AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY) will be used for retrieval validation purposes.)
If you're dealing with a dump of your database, you'll probably want to keep it private, but you may want to make other objects available to the public.
If you want an object to be publicly accessible, click on the item and select Edit in the window that will appear on the right.
Note: You can also bulk select the items by marking multiple items and hitting Actions and 'Set Object Permissions.'
An S3 Object Permissions can be set to the following:
Write ACL - Allow anyone with access to the account can create, overwrite, and delete an object.
You now have an S3 bucket that contains a dump of your MySQL database that will be a requirement for completing one of the MySQL Database Setups tutorials.
