Suddenly unable to connect to my external database in SEA region, switching region fixes.

Hi! Just wanted to chime in that I had users report that my website was down. After checking my logs in Fly, I see:

Unable to connect to my database…Which is weird because this had been working completely fine and I had not deployed any changes for a weeks.

I moved my instance to ORD:

jordan@Jordans-iMac encore % fly regions set ord -a encore-graphql
**Region Pool:**
ord
**Backup Region:**
vin
yyz

And now my app is running fine. Did something happen in the SEA region disallowing connections all of a sudden?

Thanks!

We’re looking into it: Fly.io Status - Connectivity failures in the Seattle region

Indeed we’re seeing these issues in Seattle and are looking into it.

woo! thank you both @michael @joshua haha
