@rydersaint I faced the same issue. Basically you have to make the bucketname complicated by using a combination of unconventional words or letters much like you would a password.

Thank you for your answer just tried

Bucket name

still get:

Unable to create bucket:
Change it to a more unique name.

retried only lowercase still not working

Name shouldn’t be that long. I used a combination of company name and application name with a total of 10 characters and it worked.

I am having the same issue, tried all combinations.
Was anyone able to solve it?


This is my bucketname


Sounds weird but it worked. So i am wondering why a more complex bucketname such as yours isn’t working.

Same issue here.

I tried over 50 unique complex, simple names for the bucket, still getting the same message.

changed the S3 credential and secret and still nothing
