How do I make my Django app in Dokku use Postgres dump as database?

Hi, I’ve recently uploaded my Django app to a Dokku droplet, and I want to know how I can make it to work with a dump of a database I have.

I’ve tried restoring to Postgres my dump but it’s not working, but, even if I where to restore data from dump, I still don’t know how can I make my app to use that database.

Could you tell me (baby steps) how can I make my Django app work with a Postgres database in Dokku droplet?

Thanks a lot!

The dump was created from Heroku where original app exists (I want to migrate)
