Cloud computing is one of the buzzwords in the web design and computing industry that seems to have a very simple definition, but a myriad of uses.
You can assume that since you are using a company as large as Google that all of your documents will be safe, plus you have reduced hard drive usage and are using less resources to create the document. Today I want to talk about two cloud computing applications: Amazon Simple Storage Services (S3) and Amazon CloudFront. Now that you have a little background on cloud computing and the Amazon services we are going to be focusing on, what exactly are we using them for? Now, we’ll stay in the AWS Console, but navigate to the CloudFront area by clicking “Services” in the top navigation.
Now, all we have to do is click on the “Create Distribution” button, and from the two options select “Download”, as it will use the S3 bucket that we created previously.
Now that we have our bucket created, we have to set up our WordPress site to communicate with S3 and start to upload all of our files. Once we have the plugin installed and activated, we are going to navigate to the General Settings within the plugin options. Once we’ve set CloudFront as our CDN, we can now navigate to the CDN page within the plugin options.
This will host all of your attachments, theme, and WordPress core files on S3 so almost your entire site will be served from Amazon S3.
I chose to do the Host attachments last because personally, that was the longest process of getting all of my files uploaded to Amazon S3. Next, navigate over to the CDN tab, and make sure “Enable CDN Support” is checked, and then we will enter in our CloudFront URL. Unfortunately, the WP Super Cache plugin does not include a way to automatically upload all of our WordPress files to our Amazon S3 bucket. Now all of your files should be synced up with your Amazon S3 bucket and the WP Super Cache plugin should be serving all of your files through CloudFront. Both of those plugins will upload files directly to S3 and make sure they don’t reside on your own server; be sure to read the description for both to see how they work.

If your computer contains sensitive files, you can protect them using the default Windows user protection or other PC locking software. Before you can start using the application, you will have to activate it using a free activation code.
Once the application is activated, enter the Master Password that can be used in case you forget any of the individual passwords for files and folders.


The main interface of MTE Folder Locker has easy access buttons at the top for Change Password, Create Encrypted Archive, Extract Encrypted Archive, Lock Folder, Unlock Folder, Secure Hidden Files and Folders, Options and View, the folder list appear in the left pane, while their contents appear in the right pane. The folder will appear with the icon of the selected “Locker.” Clicking it will take you to the select ‘Locker” instead of opening contents of the original folder. Choose Create Encrypted Archive from the top to choose individual files and make an encrypted archive of all the selected files.
The System Security option allows you to disable default system options, such as Show Hidden Files, Folder Options Menu and Hide Protected Operating System Files. MTE Folder Locker works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. AddictiveTips is a tech blog focused on helping users find simple solutions to their everyday problems. It is a phrase used to define the use of the internet and remote servers to store and manage data.
You can create and work on your document on the internet, and when you save it, the file is also saved on the internet. What these two services do is save files from your website onto Amazon’s remote servers, and serve these files to your user from multiple locations in the world to optimize loading time and file delivery, respectively. We are first going to click on “Create Bucket” to create the bucket for our WordPress site. We are going to be using a popular WordPress Plugin called W3 Total Cache because not only does the plugin have features for easily working with S3 (and any CDN for that matter), it does a great job of speeding up your website using the best caching techniques — describing the caching side of W3 Total Cache is outside the scope of this article, but you can find a great tutorial here. We are going to go in reverse order as we will be uploading our theme files first, then our wp-includes files, and lastly our host attachments. You will see progress as the files upload, and also identify any problems that may have occurred in the upload process.
You activate the plugin by simply checking the “Caching On” radio button on the “Easy” tab of the WP Super Cache Settings. You can find this URL by navigating to the AWS Console and looking at the Distribution that you just created, and it will be under the “Domain Name” column. Your website should now be hosting all of its files from Amazon’s Simple Storage Service and distributing them through the CloudFront content delivery network using your preferred WordPress caching plugin.
Besides writing and web design, he loves to skateboard and snowboard, and has been doing both for 11 and 6 years respectively, although some would say it’s getting progressively harder for him to step away from his work and wander outside. It will lock down your entire computer, and anyone without a password will not be able to access it. To get your free activation code, click Generate Code Free and get the code from the corresponding web page.


The Lock Folder window allows you to choose Control Panel, My Computer, Programs, Recycle Bin etc as the Locker. We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Of course, while downloading it to your computer is always an option, most of what happens is on Google’s server. You only pay for what you use, which is what makes the services provided by Amazon so great.
Here we are going to enter in our Access key ID, Secret key, and tell the plugin what S3 bucket we want to store our files in. Uploading is usually pretty quick, and should only take a minute or two, depending on your internet connection, to upload the theme files. If you want to reduce the size of your images and consequently, the time it takes for them to upload to S3, I highly recommend checking out the WP Smush.it plugin.
However, if you have to share your computer a lot, telling your password to other people and changing it every time can be a bit annoying. To keep using the application, you are also required to re-enter a new activation code after every 14 days, which is a minor inconvenience nonetheless. To find your Access key and Secret key, simply click your name when logged into the AWS Console, and click “Security Credentials” to receive the necessary information. Other than that, you will also have to remain around the person to ensure that they are not going near your personal files. The AWS Console is where you will manage any of the services you use, but for now we are just interested in S3, so go ahead and click that link. Once you have that information in, your buckets should automatically come up, so just make sure the correct one you want to use is selected. There are a lot of paid tools out there that allow you to take care of sensitive information stored in files and folders, but free security tools either don’t have the complete set of options or are limited in the number of files or folders that they can lock. MTE Folder Locker is an application for Windows that allows you to lock your personal and sensitive files and folders with a password.
