You can specify which cfg file to use with the -c option: you can thus have a different config file for each account with different credentials, passphrase, etc.

S3cmd stores the connection details in a file called “.s3cfg” which is placed in your home directory. If you change the settings in this file you should be able to run a script to work with multiple accounts, but maybe not simultaneously.

Subject: [S3tools-general] s3 connection credentials with each get command



I was trying to download the database from s3 automatically and was able to do for a single client using s3cmd.But it was not possible for multiple clients.
Is it possible  to dynamically provide s3 connection credentials with each get command?

Thanks and Regards,
