    I need help to configure W3 Total cache to use CDN service from Amazon S3 with Amazon Cloudfront

    I have my W3 Total cache all set up and working with Maxcdn, but now i am moving to Amazon as the have more nodes in Asia where most of my traffic is from.

    I have done this:

    • I created the bucket in S3
    • I then created the Distribution in Cloudfront
    • I create the cdn in Cpanel

    Now in W3 Total General window under cdn. Which darn one do i select.

    • Origin Pull -- Amazon Cloudfront
    • Origin Push --- Amazon Cloudfront
    • Origin Push -- S3

    On the configuration page i need some help as well.

    • I have my access key id
    • I have the secret key
    All other configurations is what i need the help with.

    If you can help me please guide me. If you can connect with mt via Messenger : Skype, MSN, Yahoo then i will appreciate.

    To make it worth your time i am offering a $10 reward via Paypal if you can help me to get it working.

    (no time wasters please, i dont want you to guess. You should have this set up on your blog and have done it a few times )

    your access and secret key you get from amazon. just find it in your account. then select pull from cloudfront. instead of asking you could have just tried all the combinations. just think about what you're doing.

    Today i am thinking more clearly and I managed to get this issue sorted out in the end.

    It seems that W3 Total cache did not allow me to manually specify the Cloudfront distribution, but it wanted me to click on create distribution from within W3 TC using the domain url as the distribution name.

    Seems to work ok now, i think (touch wood)

    Check out my site with W3 Total Cache, using the following settings:
    • Page Cache - Disk Enhanced
    • Minify -- Auto ( Will figure it out later )
    • Database cache - Disk
    • Object Cache - Disk
    • Browser cache -- Enabled
    • CDN - Amazon Cloudfront - Using local CName
    • Varnish - Enabled and specified only the ip of my server
    • Cloudflare --Not yet using but looking into it

    If you want to see this is the site: http://article-spin-service.com

    If anybody want me to post a screen shot of any of the detailed inner settings of each of the W3 Total Cache, let me know.

    Talked to soon ...
    Everything went all screwed up again and the cdn was not showing the CSS.

    I disabled W3 Total cache, and now user WP super cache with Cloudflare.

    All good again
