AWS HTTP error: cURL error 6 Could not resolve

The case: I’ve tried to integrate spaces to save images of my app. I created spaces and followed the steps of adding info of space into filesystem

'do_spaces' => [
            'driver' => 's3',
            'key' => env('DO_SPACES_KEY'),
            'secret' => env('DO_SPACES_SECRET'),
            'region' => env('DO_SPACES_REGION'),
            'bucket' => env('DO_SPACES_BUCKET'),
            'endpoint' => env('DO_SPACES_ENDOINT'),
'default' => env('FILESYSTEM_DRIVER', 'local'),
    'cloud' => env('FILESYSTEM_CLOUD', 'do_spaces'),

then I tried to save images to the space using next line and different other lines $imagePath = $imageFile->store('/', 'do_spaces');

but It always generate an exception

The Issue(Exception):-

Aws\S3\Exception\S3Exception: Error executing "PutObject" on ""; AWS HTTP error: cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: (see for in file projectPath/vendor/aws/aws-sdk-php/src/WrappedHttpHandler.php on line 195

Hi there,

Indeed, you should not use as the hostname as I believe that it is not a valid endpoint. The endpoint should look something like this

For PHP it would look as follows:

  • Require the package:
php composer.phar require aws/aws-sdk-php
  • Code snippet example:

// Included aws/aws-sdk-php via Composer's autoloader
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use Aws\S3\S3Client;

$client = new Aws\S3\S3Client([
        'version' => 'latest',
        'region'  => 'us-east-1',
        'endpoint' => '',
        'use_path_style_endpoint' => false,
        'credentials' => [
                'key'    => getenv('SPACES_KEY'),
                'secret' => getenv('SPACES_SECRET'),

If you are using Laravel, you could follow the instructions here from step 5:
