Cannot connect postgres to my Django App

I have django application and wanted to host on render using postgres database. I have created the service and database and both are in same region. When I ran “makemigrations” it is showing "‘default’: could not translate host name “dpg-cm67ebocmk4c73cuc45g-a” to address: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
“. I can’t migrate my psql database to the render app. All I can see is the front end and when I try to login in the app it shows " OperationalError at /login/ no such table: auth_user” page. I tried researching it but I all I got was to check for the regions. This the database code in my file. Any help is appreciated!!!
if ‘DATABASE_URL’ in os.environ:
print(“Using the Postgres URL”)
database_url = os.environ.get(‘DATABASE_URL’)
parsed_database_url = dj_database_url.parse(database_url)
print(“Parsed DATABASE_URL:”, parsed_database_url)
DATABASES = {‘default’: parsed_database_url}
print(“Postgres URL not found, using sqlite instead”)
‘default’: {
‘ENGINE’: ‘django.db.backends.sqlite3’,
‘NAME’: os.path.join(BASE_DIR, ‘db.sqlite3’),


Screenshot seems to show the code is still using SQLite (“Exception Location”) and that it doesn’t contain an auth_user table (“Exception Value”).

You’ll need to ensuer your DATABASE_URL environment variable is defined, pointing to your Postgres service and that any migrations have been run to setup the required tables.
