How to Use N0C Storage

Introduction

N0C Storage is a platform designed to store massive files such as backups, archives and items that do not require a high-performance disk (SSD). As such, it can host images, videos and other large files for your website. It is also designed to be used as a CDN to host your static files.

In the following lines, we explain how to use the N0C Storage interface to :

  • get an overview (disk space usage, as well as the public URL and custom URLs for accessing N0C storage);
  • view connection information to N0C storage that can be used by your websites;
  • download the prefabricated configuration file that allows to connect your CMS to N0C Storage using the S3 protocol.

Management of files stored in N0C Storage is explained in another article (how).

ProtocolProtocol for connecting your CMS to N0C Storage .

Simply put, the S3 protocol is a file system. Instead of saving data in the conventional way, we save “objects” in containers, or buckets, which are a kind of folder.
In the context of this article, do not associate “ S3” with Amazon. We are talking about the S3 protocol.
BucketName of the bucket.
HostServer name.This is the server on which the user connects to access N0C Storage.
PortPort number.The port is the entry point to the service on the server connected to the network.
TLS/SSLThe check mark confirms that TLS/SSL is active.
RegionRegion in which your N0C Storage is located.A region is a part of the Internet located within the borders of a country.
Access keyPublic key for secure access to N0C Storage.
Secret keyPrivate key to access N0C Storage.The key is hidden, but simply click on the blurred region to display it on the screen.

Quick Setups

Prefabricated configuration files are stored in the QUICK SETUPS section.

The AKEEBA BACKUP ON JOOMLA & WORDPRESS plug-in is an invaluable tool for securing your Joomla! and WordPress environment. With it, you can easily store your backups on N0C Storage.
