Frequently Asked Questions

What does aws/aws-sdk-php do?

The aws/aws-sdk-php is an open-source software development kit that provides a way for PHP developers to integrate their applications and software with Amazon Web Services (AWS). It enables developers to interact with AWS services, such as Amazon S3 and Amazon DynamoDB, directly from their PHP code. AWS's extensive offerings, from secure file storage to database functionalities and beyond, can be simplified and streamlined using the AWS SDK for PHP.

How do you use aws/aws-sdk-php?

The aws/aws-sdk-php can be incorporated into a PHP project through Composer, a commonly used tool for dependency management in PHP. Once you have Composer installed globally on your system, you can easily add the AWS SDK as a dependency by running the following command in the base directory of your project:

composer require aws/aws-sdk-php

After successful installation, you can import the SDK into your PHP script using the Composer's autoloader and start using AWS services. For instance, to create an Amazon S3 client, you can use this code:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use Aws\S3\S3Client;
$s3 = new S3Client([
    'version' => 'latest',
    'region'  => 'us-west-2'

And to upload a file to Amazon S3, you can do something like this:

try {
        'Bucket' => 'my-bucket',
        'Key'    => 'my-object',
        'Body'   => fopen('/path/to/file', 'r'),
        'ACL'    => 'public-read',
} catch (Aws\S3\Exception\S3Exception $e) {
    echo "There was an error uploading the file.\n";

Remember to replace my-bucket, my-object, and /path/to/file with your actual Bucket name, Object Key, and the path to your file, respectively.

Where are the aws/aws-sdk-php docs?

The official AWS SDK for PHP documentation, which offers both getting started and in-depth usage information, is available on the AWS website. You can find it here. The documentation discusses various topics from how to sign up for AWS and retrieve your AWS credentials, minimal system requirements to run the SDK, and how to install and use the SDK, to more detailed topics like how to use different AWS services, exception handling, and much more.
