IAM User Creation - Best Practices for WordPress on AWS

IAM User Creation

You need to create an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user for the WordPress plugin to store static assets in Amazon S3. For steps, see Creating an IAM User in Your AWS Account.

Note: IAM roles provide a better way of managing access to AWS resources, but at the time of writing, the W3 Total Cache plugin does not support IAM roles.

Take a note of the user security credentials and store them in a secure manner – you need these credentials later.
