    Here is the prompt:

    Choose database host (e.g. IP) without port: 127.0.0.1

    it should be 127.0.0.1 which is the localhost (loopback) IP address unless you are using a remote database or something

    Many of managed (remote) database providers these days are using a unique CNAME instead of IP address so you can input that, I tested and it works fine with SlickStack

    example:

    my-unique-string.region.example.com

    not necessarily CNAME but you understand my meaning I think 😆

    @Janice is correct

    You can input whatever database server address (URL) that your managed database provider gave to you, it doesn’t necessarily need to be an IP address and probably will not be an IP address at most of the modern cloud database providers these days.

    SlickStack defaults to using TCP connections for the database which means it will connect to remote databases no problem.

    DigitalOcean managed database hostname example:

    your_database_cluster_hostname.b.db.ondigitalocean.com
