How do I used s3cmd unattended?
I need to push a file up to Linode object storage using s3cmd (if there's an alternative app, please let me know). This will be done via a shell script, and must be 100% unattended, so I cannot manually create an auth session and enter my key/secret etc. All credentials and access parameters must be supplied as command line args.
s3cmd sync test.txt s3://mybucket.eu-central-1.linodeobjects.com/test.txt
I've also tried using
s3cmd … --access_key=ACCESS_KEY --secret_key=SECRET_KEY
ERROR: S3 error: 403 (InvalidAccessKeyId): The AWS Access Key Id you provided does not exist in our records.
I assume s3cmd is trying to authenticate up against AWS?
Did you set the website_endpoint in your .s3cfg?
It should look something like
website_endpoint = http://%(bucket)s.website-eu-central-1.linodeobjects.com
This is mentioned in the guide on hosting a static site
No, I cannot set anything up on the system beforehand. All I can do is install s3cmd, there is no .s3cfg on my system and never will be, it's completely stateless. I can push to AWS with the example I'm using, I would like to be able to do the same with Linode.
Looks like the option you need (from the s3cmd docs) is
s3cmd … --host=eu-central-1.linodeobjects.com --access_key=ACCESS_KEY --secret_key=SECRET_KEY
You might also need to pass “--host-bucket=” to get correct URLs.
