MySQL to PGLoader migration error on Managed database

I’m trying to migrate to a managed database, both hosted in DigitalOcean, one is a MySQL cluster, the other is a POSTGRES one.

When I enter this command:

pgloader mysql://<DB_USER>:<DB_PASS>@<DB_HOST>:<DB_PORT>/<DB_NAME "postgresql://<DB_USER>:<DB_PASS>@<DB_HOST>:<DB_PORT>/<DB_NAME>"

I get this error:

Failed to connect to pgsql at "MY-HOST" (port MY-PORT) as user "MY-USER": Database error 28000: no pg_hba.conf entry for host <MY_PC_IPV4>, user "MY-USER", database "MY-DB", SSL off

Can somebody help me? I’m banging my head against the wall as I seem to be doing something very wrong.

I created the clusters normally and they are accepting all incoming connections (no IP restrictions).

Hi @alramalho

It seems like SSL mode is not enabled.

By default, you are not permitted to transmit data unencrypted (meaning SSL is required). Can you attempt the connection again with SSL enabled? You can download the CA Certificate from your database connection details to use verify-ca or verify-full SSL modes.
