Knex:Error Pool2 - Error: connect ECONNREFUSED
This error occurs when when your Perk application is unable to connect to a database. Often this means that your local database server is not running.
If have installed PostgreSQL with homebrew you can try to restart the postgres server using the following commands:
launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.postgresql.plist
If you get no output that likely means that the server was restarted successfully. If you get an error try researching that specific error.
Alternatively, you can try running postgres without launchctl using the following command:
postgres -D /usr/local/var/postgres
You should see output that looks like this:
LOG: database system was shut down at 2016-05-28 12:57:11 CDT LOG: MultiXact member wraparound protections are now enabled LOG: database system is ready to accept connections LOG: autovacuum launcher started
If you get an error try researching that specific error.
After successfully restarting your database server, try restarting your perk app by first typing ctrl+c in the terminal window where you originally saw the error. Then type
npm run dev.
