Question

504 error Connection Pool error I think

Randomly on my App platform app I’m getting a 504 error and it says “We encountered an error where trying to load your application and your page could not be served. Check the logs for your application in the App Platform dashboard.” But I didn’t see anything in the logs and this only started happening after I connected database to a connection pool. Please need help…I’m using react and nodejs with postgresql and prisma

Hi there,

I recently answered a similar question here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-make-use-of-managed-pg-pool-in-app-platform

If you have Trusted Sources enabled for your database you would need to make sure that your app is actually added to the trusted sources list as described here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/how-to/manage-databases/

Regarding the connection pools, note that DigitalOcean currently does not support trusted sources with MongoDB or Postgres connection pools.

Best,

Bobby
