Uploading to Spaces via s3cmd without configuration

I am working on a custom docker image to automize the backup process, once the task is done it creates a tar file.

Since it runs in a docker image, I would like to pass configuration on the “put” command instead of running s3cmd --configure.

Probably I am missing something, the command below gives ([SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1123)) error

s3cmd put var/dbBackup/backup.tar.bz2 s3://bucket_name --access_key=xxx --secret_key=yyy

Hi there,

As per this answer here, what I could suggest is adding the --no-check-certificate flag.

Let me know how it goes.

Alternatively, if you’re using ubuntu or debian base then you can fix this error by installing the ca-certificates package.

RUN apt-get update && DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends openssh-client ca-certificates
