I installed Duplicity with the helpful damontimm script and advice.

I also created an s3 bucket foo.woof.com.

But when I run Duplicity (via the script), I get:

UnsupportedBackendScheme: scheme not supported in url: s3+http://foo.woof.com/

What should I do? Do I need to make S3 bucket foo.woof.com available via DNS? (I do know how to do that.)

I am using the --s3-use-new-style option.
