FORMERLY WP OFFLOAD S3 LITE

Gives me faster site with less load on my hosting server
By PatrickMorris on August 31, 2023
Been using Offload Media for years, and ran into a problem installing on a new site. Support found my issue quickly and the site works well. I like this plugin because it is completely transparent, makes my pages load faster, and takes all my largest files off my hosting server.
Worst priced Pro plugin, $1200/year?!
By authentico on August 25, 2023
For some reason, the Pro version counts how many photos you have in your WordPress (strange, considering this is not an API Service), and you pay based on tiers.
To have unlimited images in your WordPress, you need to pay $1,200/year.
The explanation by the developer as to why this is the case is not any bit reassuring:
Why a count of offloaded media?∞
Strange, right? Most WordPress plugins are limited to a certain number of sites, so why is this one using the number of offloaded media items? It turns out to be more fair…
Let’s say you have 3 small WordPress sites. The Bronze license would probably serve you well. While a big site like TechCrunch would need a much bigger license. That’s fair.
Now lets imagine licenses were limited by number of sites instead (like most other WordPress plugins): Bronze 1 site, Silver 2 sites, Gold 5 sites, etc. TechCrunch would only need a Bronze license while you would need Gold. Boo-urns.
So for the smallest Pro package, you're expected to pay $70/year to manage 2,000 photos LOL.
I can get a developer on Fiverr to build me this functionality using ChatGPT in a day or two, and have unlimited with no renewal fee.
Breaks my site

My site became unresponsive shortly after activating this plugin. Reboot, disable plugin, delete plugin
Do not use it, it is a trap for pro version
By euwo on January 26, 2023
If you are using the lite version, then there is a high probability that the links to your images will break when you turn off the plugin. The only option then would be to purchase the Pro version in order to get your images and the correct links back. It's a trap, I would never use it again.
Works Great But Needs To List php Requirements
By kloddant on January 9, 2023
This plugin is excellent, but I always forget that it has several undocumented dependencies if you are installing it on a fresh EC2 instance. If you install it on Ubuntu, you need to run these commands:
apt install php-xml
apt install php-curl
If you are on CentOS or something, probably just substitute yum for apt. And you may need to specify your php version number.
Also, when creating your IAM policy, you need to restrict your bucket ARN to 2 resources, not just one. One of the resources is the bucket name itself, and the other is the bucket name/*

Ofc only the pro version have support for moving already uploaded files. Skipping this one due to shady monetization tactics.
Buggy code and insufficient QA
