Spaces: Uploading files via php (CentOS 7)

I’m new to the developing scene!

I’m currently constructing a Video CMS for a directed study at my school/a hobby/hopes of going big one day! With that I decided to host the site on my VPS through a different company then DigitalOcean! Then I came across Spaces and thought it would be a great way to add more files and such!

My site is being hand-coded with PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (no framerworks are being used!) I was wondering how I would go about adding Spaces to my website to accept these files?

You’ll need to use custom PHP code to leverage the spaces/CDN API and perform required actions. We’ve just started playing with them ourselves. I suggest the following reference guide is a good starting point.

Hope that helps a little, once we’ve had a bit more time with them I’ll be able to help with specifics.



  • Hey thank you for the resource @StuartMitchell :) I have looked into that and found references to Amazon’s “AWS SDK” I looked into it and saw it was fairly easy to install and use! Thus, I tried it and after some tinkering I’ve got it to work!!!
