A little confused on how to add my own database

Hi, I’m doing my first deployment for a school project and I have a local database, with my information already. I was following a tutorial video from our school and everything for the deployment work except my database information isn’t showing up. postgres://localhost:5432/gracebuster is what I’m using under the environment tab, next to DATABASE_URL, but I keep getting an error saying it can’t connect.

Hey Justin,

localhost won’t be where the database is running when you’ve deployed to us, you should use the Internal Database URL value for the database you have deployed to us instead there,
