Elixir, Ecto / Phoenix + Managed Postgres Db
I’m trying to setup an Elixir / Phoenix / Ecto project on my droplet and connect to a DO managed postgresql. No matter what I do I can’t connect to my DB properly:
** (Postgrex.Error) FATAL 3D000 (invalidcatalogname) database “postgres” does not exist
(dbconnection) lib/dbconnection/connection.ex:84: DBConnection.Connection.connect/2
(connection) lib/connection.ex:622: Connection.enterconnect/5
(stdlib) proclib.erl:249: :proclib.initpdoapply/3
My connection string is right, connectivity seems fine ( I setup my droplet to be able to access the db cluster) but Elixir/Ecto complains with the above error.
