Question

DO Spaces returns 403 error when Wordpress edits files.

So I have a WordPress Droplet that is using DO Spaces for its files. When ever a file is changed(regenerate thumbnails, rotate and image) DO Spaces then responds with a 403 Error for that file. Is this a configuration issue? How can I solve this. I am using the DO Spaces plugin.

Hey @fredblueshoon

I suspect that this error is due to the permissions on the object. By default, all the objects in your bucket have Private permission. You will need to access them after authorizing them with the secret-access key pair.

If you want to access it directly without creating signed URLs, you can change the permission to Public. Read more about changing the permissions using Cloud Dashboard https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/how-to/set-file-permissions/#change-file-permissions

I hope this helps :)
