b2-sync

Description

This plugin allows you to sync your wp-content/uploads folder onto your backblaze b2 bucket.

It will also automatically sync all your media whenever you:
– create a new post or page and add a new media
– edit an existing post or page to add or update a media file

NOTE:
It will not get triggered if you upload a media on the media library page.
Fortunately, after you upload a media like this, you can directly trigger a sync to backblaze by using the action button that we put at your disposal.

REQUIREMENTS

This plugin relies and assumes that you have rclone installed on your server.
Refer to this guide on how to install rclone: https://rclone.org/downloads/

TODO in next phase

  • Identify an appropriate hook when a media is uploaded via the WordPress Media Library so that we can trigger the sync for this action as well
  • Tell the sync process to ignore certain type of files
  • The log file messages are not pretty – create a custom approach for that instead of relying on monolog/monolog
  • (DONE) Show a real-time verbose mode of the sync when triggering the sync manual using the action button?

1.1.0 (December 4, 2021)

  • New Feature: see real-time output on the log screen
