I have been trying to use this to upload my /site/default/files folder to serve the files from s3 but I have not been able to get a single file to transfer to there or serve from there ? Is this supposed to work with sftp or do I need to be on ftp? I can provide any information that would be useful to help answer.

Hi Nick,

Your initial text is a bit confusing SFTP is not supported.

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSH_File_Transfer_Protocol

"SFTP is not FTP run over SSH, but rather a new protocol designed from the ground up by the IETF SECSH working group. It is sometimes confused with Simple File Transfer Protocol. [1]"

If you don't have an explicit need for FTP then there's no need to use it, StorageAPI will happily upload files to S3 from the web servers file system.
