I am opening this question to help my fellow developers. I am serving my django static files using DIGITAL OCEAN spaces. Although this solution is amazing perhaps it lacks proper documentation. Upon deceiding to use CDN to serve my content i had serious issues fixing static url in my django settings. This is because, Origin uses : but cdn subdomain in most cases is like this : which uses something called virtual addressing style by amazon s3.

Solution: To fix this simply include : AWS_S3_ADDRESSING_STYLE = ‘virtual’ in your with the rest of your S3 code.

Thanks and have a nice day ahead.
