is there any way to see data in database like normally we can connect our postgres database to pgAdmin?

I want to see the data in tables of my database

If you want to check the tables in your database you can do this:

flyctl ssh console --app postgres-app-here
psql -h -U user-you-want-here

Then in psql you can use the command \d to list the tables in your database.

For accessing it through pgAdmin, it’s a bit different. The database is accessed by your other apps over private networks, so you’ll need to make a tunnel between your computer and the database. You can use Wireguard to create a tunnel. Then you can connect to the database in pgAdmin with the internal address (e.g. paulgra-ham.internal) and your credentials.

You can read more about how to setup Wireguard with this reference:

It’s gotten even easier! Try flyctl postgres connect for psql, or flyctl proxy to forward a port to your local machine (that you can point pgAdmin to), without setting up your own WireGuard.

How to connect postgres to pg_admin any step by step guide please

Did you let the proxy command keep running? You can’t cancel it, it needs to stay running in a tab.

That psql command looks like it might have worked. You could also connect from something like Postico, which is a little easier than a CLI. If you want to use psql you can actually run:

flyctl pg connect -a <db-name>

Then follow these instructions: psql command line tutorial and cheat sheet | postgres

want to connect it here this is not working for me commands are working fine

You’ve forwarded the database port to port 5432 on your computer (localhost).

At this point it’s just a matter of setting up pgAdmin or whatever other client you want to use. Server Dialog — pgAdmin 4 6.5 documentation
