It is easy to create an access key and a secret key for your DigitalOcean Spaces to add them to your SimpleBackups account.

In this tutorial I will highlight the steps to follow and also provide some screenshots afterwards for additional help.

Simply follow the following steps:

  1. Log in to your DigitalOcean Spaces account or go directly to

  2. Click Manage Keys on the right hand side of the Spaces screen or directly go to

  3.  Next to Spaces access keys, click Generate New Key then add a name for your key and click the check mark.

  4. A new Key and Secret will be generated. The shorter one is the Access Key and the longer one is the Secret Key. Use these two values when adding your DigitalOcean Spaces account to SimpleBackups.

An overview of the selections made in the previous steps:
