How to Get Access Keys

First, log in to the AWS Management Console as the root owner, and then search for the IAM resource on your dashboard.


After that, click on the user for whom you want to generate access keys and secret keys.


Open it.


After clicking on it, you need to go to security credentials, where you will find the option to create access keys.


Scroll down the page a bit.


Click on create access keys.

Through this step, your access keys and secret keys will be generated. Make sure to save them confidentially. If you lose these keys, they cannot be retrieved, and you will need to generate new ones.

Upload/Download Content

After saving the configuration settings, admin will have an Upload Button through which he can Upload all PrestaShop Content (dynamic data).

The following content can be sent to Amazon S3.

1- Product Image
2- Category Images
3- Remaining Images



  1. The Upload Process may take some time depending on the amount of content on your PrestaShop Site.
  2. Make sure you have created a backup of your data before uploading.

Once the upload is complete, a notification message will display. This informs the admin about the successful upload of the content.


Remember –  At this stage the PrestaShop Content is Uploaded but not deleted from PrestaShop.

Similarly, you can upload the Category images and the Remaining images.


After the upload of the content, a third tab is visible on the configuration page i.e. “Enable/Disable Amazon S3”.


Enable Amazon S3

When Admin clicks on Enable button, then the Content Uploaded is deleted from PrestaShop end and gets stored on Amazon Server.


Enable module is in process.


A message appears indicating that the module is enable.


After module is enable, put/save the S3 Bucket URL (in S3 Configuration) in Media Server under Performance tab.


NOTE –  In case admin wants to disable or uninstall the module, then it is necessary that the content is first downloaded from S3 Server.

On upload/download Content Tab –  Admin gets an option to download the content from Amazon Server.


Downloading is in process:


Downloading complete. You can further re-download the content if needed.


Also, once the content is downloaded, you can disable the module from “Enable/Disable Amazon S3” tab.

Module is disabling.


Module disabled.


Coming back to the module enabling part, as soon as the Module is Enabled –  A new tab gets added to the Manage Amazon S3 Page –  “Update Image Link

Update Image Link


When the Images are uploaded on Amazon S3 server, then the images used in the TinyMCE will generate links from amazon server.


Now when we are disabling or uninstalling the module, we can update the image links and rewrite it with PrestaShop URL.


Re-Download / Re-Upload Option


There may be a case when admin uploads the data but forgot to enable the module. Then, in this case, the dynamic content of PrestaShop will be still on the PrestaShop.

Here, if admin add/update any new data, then admin will have an option to re-upload the data. So that only new content goes on Amazon end.


There may be a case when Admin has Enabled the module  –   This means the dynamic content of PrestaShop has been sent on Amazon and no more exists on PrestaShop end.

Now if admin needs the data on PrestaShop end we need to Download the Data. Now if admin add/update any new data, this will be set on Amazon end but it will not exist on PrestaShop end.  Here Admin will have an option to Re-Download the Data so that the newly added dynamic content comes at PrestaShop end also.

That’s all for PrestaShop Amazon S3 module.
