How to use aws s3 to store all the images uploaded by users?

Hello, I have set up a forum site on my host with the help of the selfhost script on the AWS platform.

But when I upload the images on my forum, I can not find the images in my s3 bucket. Or is it possible to use the AWS S3 bucket to store all the images uploaded by users?

@andrewbrown did you attempt/encounter issues accessing images in S3 buckets on your Forem?

Hi, Ella, i used the selfhost script to deploy the forum on aws, and finally i got to know that u need to set the asw bucket params in the rails.env file. and reload the whole service.

will add a more detail post later to guide people who want to use their aws bucket service.
