From here, you will need to fill in all the details requested of you from your Amazon S3. If you have not yet set this up, watch the following video, which will give you an indication of how to set this up on AWS.

 

Once you have set up your new storage configuration, you can then apply it to any of the items in the storage settings tab as you see fit. Those items will then be moved over to your S3 storage area by background task.

(note: if you have large attachments, it's a good idea and may be needed to increase php memory accordingly, we have a base setting of 128MB, setting this to 256MB or 512MB to allow for large uploads to AWS S3 may be needed)
