Why isn't amazonaws not recognized as a CDN? - mklenk - 03-13-2011 10:01 PM

Hi all,

why does the test say that i have to use a cdn, when my pics are already on amazonaws?

Here a "screenshot":
---------
Use a CDN for all static assets:

FAILED - http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/wuubi/mr_wuubi.png
FAILED - http://wuubi.s3.amazonaws.com/currywurst+sosse+schaelchen.jpg
----------

Thanks

mklenk

Amazon S3 is not a CDN.

To use the CDN service with S3, you need to use Amazon Cloudfront - http://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/
