Running Kratos with Postgres

I’ve been looking at how would I setup postgres db instead of default sqlite provided in the quickstart example. Note that default quickstart worked for me so after that I ran:

docker-compose -f quickstart.yml -f quickstart-standalone.yml -f quickstart-postgres.yml up --build --force-recreate

I’m getting Unable to ping database, retrying. message. Any suggestions would be helpful. Below is full logs I have:

Looks like a bug in the docker-compose files, fixes/issues welcomed :slight_smile:

Just need to connect them to the same network in the docker-compose files. Fix here: https://github.com/ory/kratos/pull/522
