This is an extremely straightforward question. “How do I connect to Postgres DB installed on a digitalocean droplet, from an external client via command-line or via third party apps like PSequel (available for MacOS) or PGAdmin?”. I am surprised that there is no direct tutorial to explain this in plain simple words. Here is what I did so far:
host all all 0.0.0.0/0 md5and in
sudo service postgresql restart
psql -h <IPv4 address> -p 5432 -U sammy -d sammy. However I get the error
psql: FATAL: password authentication failed for user "sammy"
How do I connect to postgres server? I would highly recommend digitalocean’s moderators to write a detailed but simple blog on “Connecting to Postgres from external client, along with best practises.”
