Using an Amazon S3 Bucket

Applications often use an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket to store large items such as images or other media files. Although AWS OpsWorks Stacks does not provide integrated support for Amazon S3, you can easily customize a stack to allow your application to use Amazon S3 storage. This topic walks you through the basic process of providing Amazon S3 access to applications, using a Linux stack with a PHP application server as an example. The basic principles also apply to Windows stacks.
