Hi @volga629,

The error seems to be showing that you have the wrong credentials to login to the DB. Could you double check your password please?



Hello Kevin,
Thank you for reply which file is stored correct credentials. I tried set from .env file, but didn’t helped.

Here are current db grants

MariaDB [bitnami_dreamfactory_lURL6]> show grants for 'bn_dreamfactory';

One solution is accessing phpmyadmin and checking the credentials/resetting them. If you are unable to access phpmyadmin you can create a new instance, as I see you are using Bitnami, it should be quick and easy.


What configuration file of dream factory store mysql credentials ?


It can be found in your .env file.


Hello Kevin,
Sorry for delay. I was investigating the issue and found that all 3 pods are using same user name credentials to connect mysql that cause a conflict. As soon I scale down to one and corrected permissions on mysql everything is connects no problem.

thank you for you help
