Patrick van Kouteren has a new tutorial posted to his site showing you how to connect your application with an OpenStack instance (specifically the CloudVPS option) via some simple CURL commands (easily translatable into PHP).

Lately I've been playing around with the CloudVPS ObjectStore, which is currently in beta phase. This blogpost shows the options of this ObjectStore in a practical way and concludes with a summary of commands you can use yourself to interact with it and some ideas. For this post, I assume you are familiar with cURL, REST and HTTP headers.

He shows how to make the requests for:

  • Authentication
  • Working with containers
  • Adding files to a container
  • Setting access permissions
