S3 as Primary Storage


I’ve completed the initial setup of NextCloud Version 12 with Ubuntu 16.04 AWS server. I read that NextCloud supports s3 as primary storage and tried testing it. It was a success. But, the files that are storing to the S3 bucket are in encrypted form. Means, I cannot read the files in AWS console. Is there a way to stop the encryption and store the files directly without encryption?

Thanks in Advance

S3 as primary storage assumes complete control of the bucket for NC use only. I assume this is for performance reasons, among other things (though I haven’t looked at the underlying code yet).

If you want to simply use NextCloud as a frontend for a bucket, storing the files directly, you want to use the ‘External Storage’ plugin and mount a specific directory using S3.
