I'm having problem connecting refinery cms's web site with amazon s3 service for storing data.
I've found this tutorial on official refinerycms web site:
1) I'm having problems concerning keys:
My question is - can I arbitrarily choose keys, or are these keys somewhere to be found in Amazon/Refinery? If later -yes, where can I found them?
What should I type for S3_REGION (I'm in Austria)?
2) After the keys are inserted, what is the next step?
Do I need to re-upload all the images on Amazon I want my site to contain?
(The original problem was - images in the site could be seen locally, but not on Heroku (where my app is currently deployed) because Heroku is read-only).
I'm missing a link how it will all function when I insert these keys.
Could someone please clarify this?
The keys are in https://portal.aws.amazon.com/gp/aws/securityCredentials
Images, files, and pages on Refinery are similar to all data in a Rails app: what's in your development application is not the same as your production app. Your local images are added to a local folder and referenced in your database, so even uploading them to Amazon wouldn't work, you'd also need to upload your database (heroku db:push). Try to remember, the point of a CMS is that you don't have to push new code to add content like images to the site.
