Caddy Cluster storage with AWS EBS or EFS

1. The problem I’m having:

I am setting up a Caddy Cluster on AWS using multiple EC2 instances. Of course, I would like to store the TLS certs centrally for all instances to access. I am aware of storage plugins such as Redis and DynamoDB but since Caddy’s default is filesystem, I am wondering if I could use something like AWS EBS or EFS as a central filesystem to store the TLS certs and that way, I don’t have to use a storage plugin but still able to use a Caddy Cluster of multiple EC2 machines.

Anyone done this already or suggestions on if this can work ?

    log {
    output file /var/log/caddy/ {
        roll_size 10mb

Beware that we have received many reports of inconsistencies with EFS:

Some file system nuances may be at play:

If it is that :point_up_2: then maybe we can work around it, at a minor performance cost.

oooo very interesting. Now that I read a few more on EFS, it seems wonky and risky. I will look into redis I guess.
