How to invalidate a single item via URL in AWS CloudFront
<?php
/**
* Super-simple AWS CloudFront Invalidation Script
* Modified by Steve Jenkins <steve stevejenkins com> to invalidate a single file via URL.
*
* Steps:
* 1. Set your AWS Access Key
* 2. Set your AWS Secret Key
* 3. Set your CloudFront Distribution ID (or pass one via the URL with &dist)
* 4. Put cf-invalidate.php in a web accessible and password protected directory
* 5. Run it via: http://example.com/protected_dir/cf-invalidate.php?filename=FILENAME
* or http://example.com/cf-invalidate.php?filename=FILENAME&dist=DISTRIBUTION_ID
*
* The author disclaims copyright to this source code.
*
* Details on what's happening here are in the CloudFront docs:
* http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/Invalidation.html
*
