DigitalOcean Managed PostgreSQL Database

After updating the django settings.py default database to correct values.
i am able to run makemigrations and migrate command and also create super user. but when i login to the admin it gives me error of “no such table - auth user, OPERATIONAL ERROR”.

I noticed that even if i delete db.sqlite3 file, it comes back when i try to login, i think it looks for table in sqlite3 and not postgres.

  1. why db.sqlite3 file re appear after deleting ?
  2. how do i correctly configure my settings.py ?
  3. what is sslmode=require have to do with this ?
  4. do i have anything to do with server ca certificate.

I set database after gunicorn, so old wsgi setting was being used ie. sqlite, after restarting wsgi process, it started working with postgres.
