The Postgres API enables users to connect to MindsDB using the PostgreSQL protocol.

If you installed MindsDB locally, use the below command to run its Postgres API:

python -m mindsdb --api http,mysql,postgres

How to Connect

To connect MindsDB in PostgreSQL, use the psql client program:

psql -h localhost -p 55432 -d mindsdb -U mindsdb

We use the local MindsDB installation with the following parameters:

  • host: localhost
  • port: 55432
  • database: mindsdb
  • user: mindsdb

Here are the commands that allow you to connect to either a local MindsDB installation or a MindsDB Cloud instance.

psql -h -p 47335 -d mindsdb -U mindsdb

Please see this page for implementation details.
