|synopsis:||sync your MEDIA_ROOT folder to S3|
Django command that scans all files in your settings.MEDIA_ROOT folder and uploads them to S3 with the same directory structure.
This command can optionally do the following but it is off by default:
- set a far future ‘Expires’ header for optimal caching.
# Upload files to S3 into the bucket 'mybucket' $ ./manage.py sync_media_s3 mybucket
# Upload files to S3 into the bucket 'mybucket' and enable gzipping CSS/JS files and setting of a far future expires header $ ./manage.py sync_media_s3 mybucket --gzip --expires
This management command requires the boto library and was tested with version 1.4c:
It also requires an account with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the AWS S3 keys. The keys are added to your settings.py file, for example:
# settings.py AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = '' AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = ''
