amazon web services - AWS SDK for PHP's S3 stream wrapper works for writing, but not for reading


I decided to use the AWS SDK's wrapper so I could stream data from my S3 bucket for convenience, but the situation is as follows:

Writing to my bucket with this code works

$client = \Aws\Common\Aws::factory(array(
    'key' => 'my key',
    'secret' => 'my secret',))


$fh = fopen('s3://mybucket/test.txt','w');
fwrite($fh, 'Test');

The file exists after this operation, so it's all OK, but I can't read it afterwards sincefopen('s3://mybucket/test.txt', 'r') fails with the following warning:

Warning: fopen(s3://mybucket/test.txt): failed to open stream: "Aws\S3\StreamWrapper::stream_open" call failed

... And this error:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Guzzle\Common\Exception\RuntimeException' with message 'Error creating resource. [type] 2 [message] fopen( failed to open stream: Invalid argument [file] phar://path/to/aws.phar/Guzzle/Stream/PhpStreamRequestFactory.php [line] 217' in phar://path/to/aws.phar/Guzzle/Stream/PhpStreamRequestFactory.php on line 271

So, I could catch that exception or usegetObject instead but I still wouldn't be able to read the file stream, which defeats the purpose. Perhaps it's not a huge matter, but I'm not familiar with the inner workings of Guzzle and the AWS SDK.

Any help or guides on what I'm doing wrong here will be greatly appreciated, I googled the issue for a while, but I couldn't find useful information to solve it, so it's likely that this is all happening due to my sheer incompetence.

Thanks in advance.
