Hi there @legihendra7,

I think that the 8889 port that you are using is not correct. You can verify this via your DigitalOcean control panel then go to Databases -> and then click on manage for your database.

Also, if you have a firewall on your Droplet, make sure that the port is open for outgoing TCP connections.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
