HowTo Upload files to Amazon S3 via a PHP or Ruby website.

http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?entryID=1073 shows how to serve files from S3 but make it look like the files are on your own website.

I would like to know how to accept files on my website but to store them on S3.

Is there any existing tutorial or ready to use opensource php/ruby code which shows how to accept a file on your webstie but behind the scens, store it on S3.

I am newbie to this so please do not provide approximate how to answers or tell me to use this or that API or read some manual in detail. I am not looking for such answers. I am looking for ready to use solution or a step by step tutorial that I implement easily. Thanks

I assume you realize that most of the upload methods are JAVA applets?


Here is Amazon's detailed descriptions of how to do it with Ruby, or else zip and ship

Would you have link to a simpler tutorial. This one is confusing with the zip and ship overhead, I want a simple solution, that I can copy and paste. As I mentioned in my tutorial : I am looking for ready to use solution or a step by step tutorial that I implement easily.

Not interested in java. though .net 2.0 or better is ok. (  asp.net in vb/c# )

Overall I am disappointed, specially as you did not even care to reply to my post.
