What are Objects in DreamObjects?


Objects are files that are uploaded into DreamObjects.

Using the Object Viewer to view objects in a bucket

To use the Object Viewer:

  1. Navigate to the DreamObjects page in your DreamHost panel.

  2. Click the View Objects button under your username.

    After you click the button, the Object Viewer loads a list of your buckets.

  3. Click the bucket name in the left panel. This lists your folders and objects within that bucket, and also shows four control buttons at the bottom.

    The Object viewer in the panel is only able to display 5000 objects at a time.
