Can't create database

When running createdb I am receiving following error:

createdb: could not connect to database template1: FATAL:  pg_hba.conf rejects connection for host "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX", user "doadmin", database "template1", SSL on

I can connect to the cluster and create new database users. ANy idea what could be causing it?

createdb is called as a part of external script of one of the libraries I’m using and while I could just create database manually via DO panel and run the installation process manually, that would be rather cumbersome

Hello, @broisatse

Can you please let me know if you’ve allowed external connections to the database or only certain IP addresses can access it? The error itself it’s:

pg_hba.conf rejects connection for host "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX"

Let me know how it goes. Regards, Alex
