The first thing you need to do is to create at least 1 bucket. Click on the Create Bucket button, give it a name and click on the Create button. It's important to note that bucket names must be unique across the entire Amazon S3 infrastructure. In addition, there are several Amazon S3 reserved names that can't be used as bucket names such as "images" and "scripts". Select the newly created bucket and click on the Create Folder button. Give it a name and click on the Check Mark icon. Create as many folders as needed to organize your files appropriately for your website.
