When connecting to my database I get a No Such File or Directory error

A No Such File Or Directory error occurs when you enter your database’s connection string directly into the terminal, instead of prepending it with psql, mysql, redli, or mongo, depending on your database.

If you are getting this error, prepend your connection string with the client command corresponding to your database. To find the connection method for your database, see the following guides for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redis, and MongoDB.

Verify your connection string and add your local machine to the database cluster’s trusted sources.
Add your machine to the database cluster’s list of trusted sources.
Check for typos and formatting errors in the connection string.
