Can't generate Solidus configuration files

I have been following instructions on to install Solidus. Everything has worked but the terminal command hangs when I run bin/rails generate solidus:install. I ran as root user. Could this be a port or a compatibility issue between psych and rails? The start of the error reads:a

/usr/share/rvm/gems/ruby-2.7.2/gems/psych-4.0.4/lib/psych/visitors/to_ruby.rb:430:in `visit_Psych_Nodes_Alias’: Cannot load database configuration: Unknown alias: default (Psych::BadAlias)

I have removed the droplet but will try reinstall.

What type of database are you using? For example, if you are using Postgres, do you have Postgres installed on your server:
