Error Timeout in my app with database

Hello, I just recently deployed a discord bot, which use SQLAlchemy[asyncio], as I tried locally it worked fine, but with the app deployed, it always shows: exception occurred for value timeouterror() with the commands that use the database connection. I am not sure where the issue is, I already added my app in the trusted sources from the database that is used as well. Any other thing that could I be missing?

Hi there,

One thing that comes to my mind here is that the database values are not available during build time but are only available at runtime along with the trusted sources.

So if you are trying to run some SQL queries during your build process it will not work. You would need to move that to the runtime process.

Let me know how it goes!
