I’m trying to use a bucket hosted in OpenIO, behind an S3 compatible proxy, with no success for now.
I can successfully list (read and write) the content of my bucket using the aws cli (credentials are in
$ http_proxy=localhost:6007 aws s3 ls --endpoint-url=http://openio s3://my-store 2020-04-20 14:36:38 0 test
Alas, trying to convert this success with
nix copy leads to a success (return code
0) with no effect:
$ http_proxy=localhost:6007 nix copy --to 's3://my-store?scheme=http&endpoint=openio' /nix/store/zdwj742fqcc71n9k8zj2a3m1f9ryyrb4-my-service
I say, no effect, because I cannot see any new object created in the bucket (as there may be a delay, I’ve also checked 24h later).
The nix documentation points that if you set a custom endpoint, it must support HTTPS. I’m unclear why that requirement, especially when I can http against AWS’s endpoints… I think I need some guidance of what to check for. Starting with: is there any success story when using custom S3 endpoints with nix?
