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 (invalid_catalog_name) database “postgres” does not exist (db_connection) lib/db_connection/connection.ex:84: DBConnection.Connection.connect/2 (connection) lib/connection.ex:622: Connection.enter_connect/5 (stdlib) proc_lib.erl:249: :proc_lib.init_p_do_apply/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.
