Cannot Setup DigitalOcean Space with s3cmd

Hi There,

I have created a DigitalOcean Space and DigitalOcean Space API Keys by going through the tutorial.

I tested with CyberDuck where I am allowed to access to the DigitalOcean Space. However, when I use s3cmd on my droplets, I am not able to access the DigitalOcean Space.

I believe that the API Keys (Access Key and Secret Key) was written correctly, it is exactly the same when I configure into CyberDuck.

Below error show when I configure in s3cmd. ERROR: Test failed: [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)

Please help

Hi there @lineardmsteam,

It looks like the issue you are encountering with s3cmd is that it cannot verify the legitimacy of the SSL certificate being used in the connection. The CLI provides a command flag that can be used to disable the SSL verification checks.

Try running your s3cmd command with --no-check-certificate and let me know how it goes!
