Database Connection Refused


We’d like to initialize our database; however we’re unable to connect to it despite setting its access to public.

Hi @tawihealth ,

Can you please provide more details about the database that you’ve spin up with Qovery? Is it a managed or container version of Postgres? Are you using a cluster type EKS or EC2?


This is a Container version of PG for our staging environment.

We deployed on EC2(K3S)

For future reader:

I fixed this by SSH’ing into DB and running the SQL commands; you need the Qovery CLI.
