Suggestion for Amazon S3 and static sites
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, December 01, 2010 at 10:10 AM.

A picture named sneakers.jpgAs part of my server reorg, I now maintain a mirror of the static content of on S3. The address of this archive is If you go there you'll get an error message, so please no need to report it. :-) permalink

This backup includes the .htaccess files, sitemaps, and could possibly include other metadata. If you have any suggestions let me know. permalink

Uploading the huge folder was a messy operation.  permalink

So here's a feature request for the Amazon team: Allow us to upload a zip archive containing the initial contents of a bucket. That way I can arrange it exactly as I want it, and have the upload take a relatively short period of time. All the tools I use are relatively slow at uploading tens of thousands of files in a single batch. permalink

Even better of course would be if Amazon could understand the .htaccess files, and even understand a subset of the httpd.conf file. Then we'd really be cooking with gas! :-) permalink
