Have you made any recent changes to the backup server or the AWS server?

Anyone been able to resolve this? I am getting the same error when backup is being uploaded to S3. Both S3 and Virtualmin are new.

I am also getting the following error.

The authorization mechanism you have provided is not supported. Please use AWS4-HMAC-SHA256

I wonder if this is the problem. How can I fix this?

Thanks, Eddie

I am seeing the same error ... AWS credentials are ok and working when using another client. Did you find a solution ? Thks. Pierre.

Hello DoubleSpeed,

Recently AWS has updated S3 framework, Go to virualmin S3 backup option and chek the regions which it supports.
