I have a small problem here. I have an app setup on Dokku vps, works well with the Dokku Postgress plugin. But I want to switch things up and use the digitalOcean managed Database(Postgress)
Since changing the database url to the managed database url: postgresql://password@host:port/db-name?sslmode=require
I get this error when I rerun the container:

appname web container output:
Error: connect ECONNREFUSED
at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:1146:16) {
errno: -111,
syscall: 'connect’,
address: '’,
port: 5432
