DigitalOcean Spaces Sync


DigitalOcean Spaces Sync plugin connects your Media Library to a container in DigitalOcean Spaces. It syncs data from your website to cloud storage
and replaces links to images (optional). You may keep the media locally (on your server) and make backup copy to cloud storage, or just serve it all
from DigitalOcean Spaces.

In order to use this plugin, you have to create a DigitalOcean Spaces API key.

You may now define constants in order to configure the plugin. If the constant is defined, it overwrites the value from settings page.
Contants description:
– DOS_KEY – DigitalOcean Spaces key
– DOS_SECRET – DigitalOcean Spaces secret,
– DOS_ENDPOINT – DigitalOcean Spaces endpoint,
– DOS_CONTAINER – DigitalOcean Spaces container,
– DOS_STORAGE_PATH – The path to the file in the storage, will appear as a prefix,
– DOS_STORAGE_FILE_ONLY – Keep files only in DigitalOcean Spaces or not, values (true|false),
– DOS_STORAGE_FILE_DELETE – Remove files in DigitalOcean Spaces on delete or not, values (true|false),
– DOS_FILTER – A Regex filter,
– UPLOAD_URL_PATH – A full url to the files, WP Constant,
– UPLOAD_PATH – A path to the local files, WP Constant

There is a known issue with the built in WordPress Image Editor, it will not upload changed images. Know how to fix this, PR welcome.

I really was looking for a simple plugin to do this work, but the plugin is no longer working, and code issues are not allowing the integration with DO.

The plugin is admittedly broken if updated to the latest wordpress version, based on support discussion, but its listed as compatible. It makes DB changes that are irreversible without undoing them manually and then if you deleted your local copy to use the destination space, you don’t have anything to return too. So the plugin as is … will just delete everything in uploads and rewrite your urls to an empty space.

If it was possible to give a less than 1 rating I would happily do it. This plugin did not sync my media with DO spaces. What’s worse, all media links on my website now link to my DO spaces CDN even though they were not synced. As a result, all images on my website appear broken. I wrote to support and received no reply so I’m left with nothing else to do but restore a backup of my site. I’m more than disappointed.
