Amazon Cloud Drive (ACD) is a web storage application from Amazon. The interface between Amazon Cloud Drive (ACD) and your Whatbox slot will be done with a python tool called acd_cli.
Note: All upload to the Amazon servers from your Whatbox slot will count towards your traffic limits.
Connect to your slot through SSH
Install a Python 3 virtualenv and activate it.
Install acd_cli in virtualenv:
pip3 install git+https://github.com/yadayada/acd_cli.git
acd_cli needs authorized to use your Amazon account. Log in at
https://acd-api-oa.appspot.com/A file named
oauth.jsonwill be downloaded. Upload this file to your slot to your home directory.
Create the directory for oauth_data:
Move the file into the directory.
mv ~/oauth.json ~/.cache/acd_cli/oauth.json
Sync with the Amazon Cloud Drive servers. This may take a while depending on how much data (nodes) you have:
You can use
acd_cli help to find out what commands you can run or access https://acd-cli.readthedocs.org for documentation.
To download files from ACD:
acd_cli download /remote_directory
To upload files to ACD:
acd_cli upload local_directory /remote_directory
To list the files/folders (nodes) on ACD:
If you get errors when uploading about file conflicts or if you want to update the node database, you can sync again with the ACD server:
If you would like to remove all authorization for acd_cli from your slot you can run the following:
This will only remove the oauth_data file and the node database from the slot. Your data on ACD will not be harmed by doing this.
To mount ACD, you will need to create a mount directory on your slot.
- Create a directory to mount ACD to:
- Use the mount command in acd_cli:
acd_cli mount ~/acd
