can't find a *.env file anywhere.

That's your problem. It isn't "something .env", it starts with "." in the name. It's a hidden file, Linux hides files that start with a dot. From the shell, do "nano .env" in that working directory (nano is an editor good for remote shell, ssh, remote servers).

(Next step) What version of PG database did you install? the line you put in for DATABASE_URL should reflect that. I suggest version 10 ...

P.S. As a convention, hiding a config file for a server software app is a poor idea. OpenSSH server software doesn't hide it's config file (/etc/ssh/sshd_config). Who thinks it is a good idea to name the file ".env" in the first place? The name "env" is also not that great, why not "app_parameters" instead?

Thanks for the thoughts.

So, I noticed when reading your reply to me that context seems absent. The inbox page does not show the name of the forum and the title of the post you replied to. Was it a conscious choice to go with such minimalism, or just haven't gotten to that level of fleshing out?
