[Feature Request] Add Option to Change the Value of use_aws_shared_config_files when Adding External Storage


Chevereto Member
💡Describe your Feature request

One of my installations of Chevereto is served in a Shared Hosting Environment; Which means I don't have an access to modify the open_basedir value.


Thus, every time I try to add a S3 Storage, it gives me an open_basedir error, since I am not allowed to access to the /.aws/config file.
This can be fixed by setting the value use_aws_shared_config_files to false.
Adding a feature to set this directly within Chevereto, or disabling this by default (Why does it need to read the AWS_CONFIG_FILE when we are required to write the credentials down within Chevereto itself?) will vastly save me (and any other who uses external storage in a shared environment) lots of time - I need to painfully add a new line every time I update my installation.

👏Where did you saw this?

aws-sdk-php Github Issue (open_basedir is not within the allowed path(s))

🔥Interest outside our community

Not really, since it is more like an improvement rather than a 'feature'.
