I'm trying to set AWS S3 to storage magento media, but when I follow the tutorial in official Magento Page here the bin/magento setup:install --remote-storage-driver=aws-s3 an error shows in terminal:

The --remote-storage-driver option does not exist

Some help?


  • can you check that in your Magento installation there is a 'vendor/magento/module-aws-s3' module?

  • Have you already completed the configuration steps to use an AWS S3 bucket for remote storage? Looks like there's a few hoops to jump through: devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/config-guide/remote-storage/…

  • @DianaBotean there´s no module-aws-s3 inside vendor/magento folder. Mar 26, 2021 at 17:19
  • @kookaburra the problem is that there is no command --remote-storage-driver in bin/magento...when i execute ' bin/magento help setup:install ' do not list --remote-storage-driver as a command Mar 26, 2021 at 17:22
  • @DiegoQueiroz Gotcha. I apologize, I must have read your question too quickly. I'm not sure module-aws-s3 is your problem since it may not have been introduced until 2.4.2 based on what I'm seeing in their Github (happy to be corrected if Diana Beaton has better information). Can I ask which Magento platform you're using? Magento Community and Commerce should each offer this CLI option, but Magento Cloud does not. I confirmed that in my cloud install and in the docs: devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/reference/cli/…

Magento 2.4.1 doesn't appear to offer this feature.

In my Magento 2.4.2 instance, this option is referenced in both the Magento_RemoteStorage and Magento_AwsS3 modules. These modules exist in the Github repository for 2.4.2, but not in the repository for 2.4.1.

Also, in the release notes for 2.4.2, the Magento developers reference this feature (see below) with a link to your devdocs page. There's nothing comparable in the release notes for 2.4.1. I'd say you can't find this option because it genuinely does not exist in 2.4.1.

Here's the relevant section:

Magento Open Source 2.4.2 Release Notes

AWS S3 support enhancements

Amazon Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) support has been enhanced to include support for:

Object storage and future extensibility Storing media files on AWS S3

  • Yes, this is correct. 2 days ago a updated to Magento 2.4.2 and the feature is present. This answer the question, but now after configure the remote storage it's not working. Mar 31, 2021 at 17:32
  • Happy to help answer this question... after it no longer matters, lol. I don't know much about the remote storage, so I hope you're able to get it worked out.

In my case, the reason is the module Magento_AwsS3 has not been active yet, so magento can't find the aws-s3 driver. You can active it by this command:

bin/magento module:enable Magento_AwsS3

But remember to install aws-cli in advance.
