Apache2::S3 - mod_perl library for proxying requests to amazon S3
PerlModule Apache2::S3; PerlTransHandler Apache2::S3 PerlSetVar S3Key foo PerlSetVar S3Secret bar PerlSetVar S3Map '/path/ => amazon.s3.bucket.name' # If you want to support non-GET requests PerlSetVar S3ReadWrite 1
This module will map requests for URLs on your server into proxy requests to the Amazon S3 service, adding authentication headers along the way to permit access to non-public resources.
It doesn't actually do any proxying itself, rather it just adds the required authentication fields to the request and sets up mod_proxy to handle it. Therefore you will need to enable mod_proxy like so:
If you permit modification requests (PUT/DELETE) using the S3ReadWrite feature then it is quite important that you protect the url from untrusted requests using something like the following on Apache 2.2:
<Proxy *> <LimitExcept GET> Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from localhost </LimitExcept> </Proxy>
