All Good Things Must Come to an End: Archiving Your Drupal site onto Amazon S3

All Good Things Must Come to an End: Archiving Your Drupal site onto Amazon S3

At some point, all sites come to an end, so join us in one example of how we did this for a government site. In this advanced session Dave Watts (Fig Leaf Software) and Kirsten Burgard (US Department of State) will take you through the steps they took to archive a Drupal 7 site onto S3.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of how to fail up through trial and error and:

  • The how-to's of switching off dynamic for static html prep. 
  • Code scraping and fetching (laughter will ensue).
  • AWS S3 over alternatives like github pages.
  • How to configure S3 to serve your content.
  • How to migrate your content to S3
  • We'll also touch on HTTPS requirements for S3

This IS a technical session intended for intermediate to advanced attendees. Please note there WILL BE CODE.
