How can I update or import my database in digital ocean?

I am new to digital ocean, I have a project in django (python) that has already been uploaded, previously it saved data without problems. I did an update and when saving data it sends me errors like:

  • Why did it work before and save data without contracting the database service and now it doesn’t?

Thank you
