I got this error:

  • The database, as currently configured, is not accessible.
    FATAL: password authentication failed for user "bitbucket"

Welcome to the Community!

I'm afraid this is exactly what it says it is.  The username and password combination you have configured for connecting to the database are not valid.

You may get this with some databases if the user is not allowed to see the database at all, or can not log into it from the Bitbucket server, but you have to start with checking the username and password.


Thanks for your feed-back.

I have checked the a i have confirmed the user and password and it's correct.

I can connect in pgadmin with this user and password.

It's VM's that a have migrate from another network. So i change de IPs acording the actual network.

May be any config in the Postgres DB server?

I would guess that your postgres service is configured to only allow login for that user from the old network.

Have you tried pgadmin from the Bibucket server?  That might give you a more indicative error message.
