6. Log into Nextcloud with an admin user and enable the "external storage support" app.

7. You can perform the integration under Administration/External Storage. Bucket = Bucket Name, Hostname = s3.timewarp.at, Port = 443, the Region can be left empty, Folder name is the name of the folder which will be used for display in Nextcloud, Enable SSL must be activated, Enable Path Style as well, Authentication = Access Key, Access Key = the Default Admin User from the namespace installation, Secret Key = the Default Admin Password from the namespace installation. Then select the users or leave it on default (then all users have access to it) and click on the checkmark to execute the installation.

8. Here you can see the new folder. All files placed in this folder are stored in the S3 Storage.

9. Here you can see the Nextcloud browser. You can see from the icon that the S3 Archive folder is included via external storage.

10. Here you can see the upload of two files in the S3 Folder List.

11. Here you can check whether the file upload has really saved the files in the S3 bucket. Here we use S3Browser. A description of the S3 browsers you can find here S3 Browser FAQ Timewarp. The files are here, the test was successful :-).
