How you can use Amazon S3 storage with Laravel

Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is a cloud storage service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). It allows you to store and retrieve data from anywhere on the web, making it an ideal solution for storing and managing large amounts of data.

S3 is designed to be highly scalable and reliable, with a 99.999999999% durability guarantee. It also offers a range of features such as versioning, security, and data management, making it a popular choice for storing and managing data in the cloud.

Integrating Laravel with Amazon S3

To integrate Laravel with Amazon S3, you’ll need to do the following:

Sign up for an AWS account and create an S3 bucket.

Install the AWS SDK for PHP by running the following command:

composer require aws/aws-sdk-php

Add your AWS access keys to the .env file:


Create a service provider to bind the S3 client to the Laravel container. You can do this by creating a new file in the app/Providers directory and add the following code:


namespace App\Providers;

use Aws\S3\S3Client;
use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;

class S3ServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function register()
        $this->app->singleton(S3Client::class, function () {
            return new S3Client([
                'version' => 'latest',
                'region'  => 'us-east-1',
                'credentials' => [
                    'key'    => env('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'),
                    'secret' => env('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'),

Add the service provider to the providers array in the config/app.php file:

'providers' => [
    // other providers

Your Laravel application is now configured to use Amazon S3. You can use the S3 client to upload and download files, manage data, and more.
