I could suggest a few things here:

  • Make sure that you have added your Droplet to the Managed Database Access control list. That way you will make sure that the Droplet has network access to the Managed Database:

  • If you have a firewall enabled on your Droplet, make sure that port 25060 is open for outgoing TCP connections.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
