Storage configuration

This controls where the media on the sites is stored.

DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE This is the standard Django storage setting, this is intended to store all data that is not sensitive to applicants

PRIVATE_FILE_STORAGE This is the app specific storage setting that allows you to define a different storage location for all media that is associated with applications and projects. It should be a path to a storage class the same way that DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE is configured

WARNING: If you do not set the PRIVATE_FILE_STORAGE, then applicant media will be stored in the DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE. This may be acceptable if the correct access permissions exist to prevent access to the sub-directory of applicant media.
