Admin must have received credentials from Amazon end. Admin will have to enter the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
Admin will select the Region and enter a valid Bucket Name
Note – A bucket is a logical unit of storage on Amazon end.
Once all the valid details are entered by the Admin, Module Configuration is set with success.
Now, There are two Steps to be managed here
- Uploading Prestashop Content
- Enabling Amazon S3
Once the Module Configuration has been saved correctly, Admin will have an Upload Button through which he can Upload all Prestashop Content (dynamic data).
Note – :
- The Upload Process may take some time depending on the amount of content on your Prestashop Site.
- Make sure you have created a backup of your data before uploading.
Once the Upload Process is completed, a Notification message will be displayed informing the Admin that the content has been uploaded successfully.
Remember – At this stage the Prestashop Content is Uploaded but it not deleted from Prestashop.
Once the Content has been Uploaded, A third tab is visible on the Configuration Page Named “Enable/Disable Amazon S3”
When Admin clicks on Enable tab – The Content Uploaded is deleted from Prestashop end and gets stored on Amazon Server.
NOTE – In case Admin wants to Disable OR Uninstall the Module, 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.
As soon as the Module is Enabled – A new tab gets added to the Manage Amazon S3 Page – “Update Image Link”
WHEN MODULE IS ENABLED :
When the Images are uploaded on Amazon S3 server, the images used in the TinyMCE will generate links from amazon sever.
DURING DISABLE :
Now when we are disabling or uninstalling the module, we can update the image links and rewrite it with prestashop URL.
WHEN MODULE HAS NOT BEEN ENABLED YET :
There may be a case when Admin has Uploaded the Data but not yet Enabled – This means the dynamic content of Prestashop is still on Prestashop.
In This situation if admin adds / updates any new data then Admin will have an option to Re-Upload the Data so that the newly added content is sent on Amazon End.
WHEN MODULE HAS ALREADY BEEN ENABLED :
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 adds / updates 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.
