Trying to load mario database course

Can not load Mario database course. It keeps spinning on redirecting to site and never goes anywhere. I have signed in and out of both github and freecode academy… still does not start.

Hello, How can I switch from Bash terminal to Postgre terminal?

You need to use the psql command.

Is this for a specific fCC challenge?

Yes, I am working on the Mario Database and when ever I open a new terminal it appears logged into Bash and can not switch over to PostGRES project

You have to login to Postgres yourself.


Click on the icon in the corner of the coderoad tab (pictured) and look at a review of all the commands you have been using. You should find the correct psql command to login with somewhere near the top of the review.

I did login to postgres and it is giving a connection fail

I tried
echo hello PostgreSQL
psql --username=freecodecamp --dbname=postgres

it it comes up with a connection fail
