Question

Cannot get spaces to work with Laravel

I am getting the following error:

Missing required client configuration options: region: (string) A “region” configuration value is required for the “s3” service (e.g., “us-west-2”).

Here is my setup (XXX to hide my creds):

.env file:
DO_SPACES_KEY=XXXXX
DO_SPACES_SECRET=XXXX
DO_SPACES_ENDPOINT=https://nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com
DO_SPACES_REGION=nyc3
DO_SPACES_BUCKET=XXXX

filesystems.php file (under the disks):
 'spaces' => [
        'driver' => 's3',
        'key' => env('XXXXX'),
        'secret' => env('XXXXX'),
        'endpoint' => env('https://nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com'),
        'region' => env('nyc3'),
        'bucket' => env('XXXXXX'),
        ],

in the view file:

    function addDocument(Request $req, $projId)
    {
            $validatedData = $req->validate([
                    'uploadFile' => 'required'
            ]);


            $image = $req->file('uploadFile');


            $file_name = pathinfo($image->getClientOriginalName(), PATHINFO_FILENAME);

            // Get the currently authenticated user...
            $user = \Auth::user();

            // Get the currently authenticated user's ID...
            $uid = \Auth::id();

            $folder = $req->input('folder');


            $folderId = \DB::table('foldernames')->where('name',$folder)->where('common',1)->value('fid');


            if (!$folderId) {

                    $folderId = \DB::table('foldernames')->where('name',$folder)->where('userId',$uid)->value('fid');

            }

            $input['imagename'] = $file_name.'_'.time().'.'.$image->getClientOriginalExtension();

            //$destinationPath = public_path('/images');

            //$image->move($destinationPath, $input['imagename']);

            $destinationPath = $image->store('/', 'spaces');
            Storage::setVisibility($destinationPath, 'public');

            $data = array('fid'=>$folderId,'fileLoc'=>$input['imagename'],'projId'=>$projId);
            \DB::table('documents')->insert($data);

    return back();

    }

As you can see in the view, I try to store the image on the space and then store the path in the DB which would represent the path to the space.

I cannot get this error to go away; do you see any issues?

Thanks!

Hi @Rwpeller

Everything seems correct! Having said that, I do have one suggestion, when configuring :

 DO_SPACES_REGION=XXX

In your .env file can you set it to be with Uppercase letters? WhatI mean is it should be like

 DO_SPACES_REGION=NYC3

Additionally, the do_spaces block in your filesystem should literally be

do_spaces' => [     
'driver' => 's3',     
'key' => env('DO_SPACES_KEY'),     
'secret' => env('DO_SPACES_SECRET'),     
'endpoint' => env('DO_SPACES_ENDPOINT'),     
'region' => env('DO_SPACES_REGION'),     
'bucket' => env('DO_SPACES_BUCKET'), 
],
