relation "app_table" does not exist LINE 1: SELECT COUNT(*)

i’m running this django app with postgresql db on digital ocean droplet, i’ve added a django model (table), when running makemigrations and migrate everything seems good, but when i try to render the page related to that model i get this error :

relation “app_table” does not exist LINE 1: SELECT COUNT(*)

I’ve tried many solutions except the one suggested to remove the entire database, i know it works, but i can’t simply remove my entire data!

do you guys have better solutions please ? much appreciated

Hi there,

If you were to run python showmigrations are your migrations listed as 'applied`?

What I could suggest is connecting to your Postgres database using psql or any other SQL client, and verifying that the database and the database tables actually exist. If you do that with psql you can follow the steps here:

How to show all tables in PostgreSQL?

If everything looks good, I could suggest trying to reset the migrations and running them again from scratch.

Let me know how it goes!
