I was thinking of migrating from amazon s3 to do spaces, so I tried to follow the tutorial to see if everything works correctly first (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-object-storage-with-django).
I am getting a 403 Forbidden on all static files requests.
Here the complete response:


I think it could be something related to the querystring parameters:


The settings.py file is identical except for AWS_S3_ENDPOINT_URL = 'https://nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com' setting, which in my case is AWS_S3_ENDPOINT_URL = 'https://ams3.digitaloceanspaces.com'
Any hints?
