Moving WordPress uploads to AWS S3

There are 2 plugins that make the magic work.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/amazon-s3-and-cloudfront/

Connects your install to the bucket of your choice and all future uploads will go to S3

https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/installation/

This plugin will run on the existing uploads (if you have any) and regenerate them on S3 whilst updating your URLs in the posts/pages.

There is a pretty handy walk through here too if you are new to AWS permissions and buckets.
