Configuring cloud storage

By default, the bulletin board will store files, such as verifiable election logs, on disk. This is not advisable, and you should edit config/storage.yml to configure a cloud storage provider such as Amazon S3. Follow instructions at to do so.

You can change most of these settings through Environment Variables.
