Any Cloud Storage (Omeka S Module)

This module allows you to store your Omeka S files on one of the following external cloud platforms rather than the local server disk:

It uses a filesystem abstraction system called Flysystem. You can build your own adapters to use with the system if there is a cloud storage system you would like to use but is not currently available via this module.

It is recommended that once you pick an external storage service you continue using it as migrating to a different external file system is not currently supported.

Installation and Configuration

  1. Install the plugin by downloading and unzipping the latest module and loading it into the modules directory of your Omeka S instance.
  2. Enable the plugin from the Admin side of your installation under “Modules”.
  3. Configure the module from the Admin side to include credentials for the cloud storage system you would like to use.

After that, when you upload media for an item, it will upload to your selected cloud service rather than to your server’s local storage.

Known Issues

  1. No migration from one cloud/filesystem to another. Pick one or manually transfer things if you decide to change services.

Warning

Use this module at your own risk.

It’s always recommended to backup your files and databases and to check your archives regularly so you can roll back if needed.

Troubleshooting

See online issues on the module issues page on GitHub.

TODO

    • [X] Remove need for users to manually change the alias in config/local.config.php (v0.2.0)
    • [X] Move all config data to a form so users can use the admin module system to enter their credentials without the need to access server files (v0.2.0)
    • [X] Make config forms prettier and easier to use (v0.3.0)
    • [X] Get a DOI for the software (v1.0.0)
    • [X] Integrate a Wasabi cloud adapter (v1.1.0)
    • [ ] Provide more detailed instructions on setting up each cloud storage system (possibly using the GitHub wiki)

Possible Enhancements

    • [ ] Allow migration between different cloud platforms
    • [ ] Write tests for module
    • [ ] Support module translation
