What is the bucket name provided by rclone serve s3

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.65.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22621.2715 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.21.4
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone serve s3 --auth-key 1,11111  D:\11  --addr

As per docs:

serve s3 will treat all directories in the root as buckets and ignore all files in the root.

So if you need bucket with specific name create directory:

You can use CreateBucket to create folders under the root, but you can't create empty folders under other folders not in the root.

One additional bucket related setting - in case you want its name be part of the url.

Use --force-path-style=false if you want to use the bucket name as a part of the hostname (such as mybucket.local)

When I open the webpage, the following message appears

hi, is an endpoint, not a web page.
you cannot access the rclone s3 server using a web browser, that will not work.

so you would access the rclone s3 server, same as any s3 server.
with rclone as the client:

  • could create a remote as per rclone docs
  • a connection string as shown below
rclone ls :s3,provider=Rclone,endpoint='',access_key_id=ACCESS_KEY_ID,secret_access_key=SECRET_ACCESS_KEY:zork -vv

rclone serve http or rclone serve webdav
