Configurate S3 after installation

Hello everybody,

i used the search but could find an answer for me.
So, i wanted to know if its possible to set s3 storage after mastodon is already installed
and what steps have to be done.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

I’m a fool…
I found a guide…

This helped me a lot : Moving Mastodon’s media files to Wasabi Object Storage

@Levero On new instances of Mastodon, everything is already setup for you, those guides were good before, now all you have to do is to enter you region, api key and secrec key. That’s about it.


What if Someone has old instance means media stored already on Local storage. it will move media to S3 storage automatically?

No You have to do it manually

I would recommend that instead of just moving everything, that you just copy all the files to your s3, just in case something goes wrong along the way… I do not think this is done automatically.
