Strapi Version: Latest Buid
Operating System: macOS Big Sur 11.6
Database: PostgreSQL 13 (Digitalocean)
Node Version: v14.18.1
NPM Version: 6.14.15
When I run the command on Mac to build Strapi, I keep getting this error: “self signed certificate in certificate chain”.
I’ve tried trusting the certificate and also disabling the force SSL. Nothing seems to work.
To install Strapi, I’m using “npx create-strapi-app foundry-strapi”. My database is hosted on DigitalOcean, so I’m not using a local DB.
Any help will be appreciated.
If you are creating a new project, I’d recommend using SQLite (quickstart option) then installing the
pg package and swapping the configs out with the PG example here: Configurations - Strapi Developer Documentation
The initial testing connection doesn’t yet account for SSL requirements (since by default a local PG instance doesn’t use SSL).
Also I’d strongly recommend that for local development you also use a local database.
Thanks, this solved my issue. I tried to install Strapi with the custom config from the start.
After doing the SQL route and then changing the connection string, everything started working.
All solved now.
