Learn Relational Databases by Building a Mario Database - Build a Mario Database

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I am trying to continue to my next lessons in Building a Mario Database course, however I am encountering an issue in which the CodeRoad is not letting me to connect with the “mario_database” when I enter the code of : psql --username=freecodecamp --dbname=mario_database and \c mario_database as well. I am also attaching the image reference of the error popping up in the terminal section so you can help me in resolving the issue.

Please help me out so I can continue my learning. I would really appreciate your help. Thank you.

Follow these hints and send a screenshot of what you get:


@icxc … Thank you for hints, I am attaching the screenshot as per your request. It is not solving the issue though. Waiting for further suggestions to get it solved.

If I am not wrong then, if you can notice that the .freeCodeCamp under Project folder it is highlighting in Red color and it used to be in Green color before, so not sure how this has happened.

Close the project. Open again Curriculum / Relational Database / Learn Relational Databases by Building a Mario Database.
The screen should look different: the terminal on a black background, nothing should appear in the left window in the PROJECT menu ( at least not what appears to you now ).
If you have the same screen that you showed in the screenshot, maybe it would be better to delete the project from CodeAlly and start it from begin.

@icxc … I have tried as mentioned steps by you. But, there has not been any changes in the issue. Could you please guide me in how to delete the project from CodeAlly and how can I start from begin ? Also the screen and the terminal is not coming on a black background. If there is a way to reset this whole mario database course then I have no issues in doing the course again… I had only completed 40% anyways so it won’t be much to recover. Kindly help @freeCodeCamp . If there is anyone else who might have already gone through this stage then I will really appreciate an input from the community.

To delete the project, log in to CodeAlly:
I think you already have a profile there and you will find it ( Learn Relational Databases by Building a Mario Database ).

This is the second “Relational Database” project.
Normally you should have already finished the first project (Learn Bash by Building a Boilerplate) and found it in your CodeAlly profile.

On the right side, click on the 3 vertical dots and delete the project.

@icxc… You’re awesome my friend! It worked!!! You have helped me out thoroughly. I really appreciate it. Thank you. Will stay in touch. :slightly_smiling_face:

Good luck with your studies and never hesitate to ask when you can’t solve something.
