Cannot connect to database with oryd/hydra:v1.0.0-rc.6_oryOS.10


Earlier we were using oryd/hydra:v1.0.0-beta.8 and we were using postgres db with a special character in the password and it was working fine.

But now we are upgrading to oryd/hydra:v1.0.0-rc.6_oryOS.10 and we are not able to connect to the same database. It is showing net/ userinfo error on db connection but the hydra migration is working


Please provide more context such as configuration, error logs, and so on.


Password was something like this

And Error was
Connecting to SQL fail
retrying in 15.0000 seconds
Then at the last we got this error
db url parse error:
net/url: invalid userinfo

But the same password was working with the previous hydra version


Would you mind showing the full DATABASE_URL? Feel free to change things to anonymize them but if it includes special characters please leave them or choose an appropriate substitute.


You can also PM it to me if that’s easier / more confidential for you


We are using somewhat similar password but getting the exact same error.
But this password is working fine with this docker image oryd/hydra:v1.0.0-beta.8 and hydra works well

As described in the image
we are using this image oryd/hydra:v1.0.0-rc.6_oryOS.10
Following scenarios were noted while using the latest image:

  1. Hydra migrate sql is working great
  2. Hydra is not able to connect to database


Could you try and urlencode the username?


We are already using it as urlencode so in docker-compose, Im using the password as this


Any idea ??


Sorry I didn’t have time to look into it but please open an issue in GitHub so we can track this.
