Hi, I will shortly be moving the tour files from my web hosting account to Amazon S3. Is it possible for me to upload the GGPKG files to S3 then use the Garden Gnome Package plugin to embed the virtual tours in a webpage on my hosting account? Is an iframe the alternative for embedding the tours, or do you have another solution?

Thanks in advance for the help!!

The package is our own file designed to work with our plugins and package viewers, so no.
For AWS you would use the output folder.
Once created you can rename the output folder but not any of the files or folders inside.
Upload to a web server and link to the index.html page inside the output folder.
Or embed it using an iframe.

If you send an e-mail to support please send a link to the forum post for reference.

Thanks, Martin, I assumed that was the case but I was hoping to be able to save the step of unpackaging the tour for each of the 100+ tours I'm moving the AWS. Definitely not a problem at any level - just thought I'd ask. ­čśÇ

Hi Westlake,

If you are going to be uploading a lot of tours to AWS S3 I'd recommend you take a look at using Command Line Interface (CLI). It really speeds up the upload process. You can find a tutorial on my site at
