I am trying to establish a new database connection from QGIS 3.4.3 to Postgres/PostGIS. I have two connections established but I can't find any options to establish another connection. I cannot recall how the other connections were established and I can't find any information on how to do this.

  • If you right-click the PostGIS node (with the elephant icon) there is a 'New Connection' option that will allow you to add as many postgis connections as you want... I have 4 right now... – DPSSpatial Feb 19 at 18:33
  • That makes a lot of sense @DPSSpatial but my right click returns no action. Maybe I need to uninstall and reinstall? – Casivio Feb 19 at 18:55
  • Oh that's weird - what operating system are you running? – DPSSpatial Feb 19 at 19:00
  • Same experience for me in 3.10. I have to add connections via the "Layer"->"Data Source Manager" (click 'New' button, add new database connection) before they show up in DB Manager. Only Geopackage & Spatialite honor the right-click in my case. – cm1 Feb 19 at 19:14
  • @DPSSpatial, I'm on Windows 10 – Casivio Feb 19 at 19:17

In the layer menu, use the datasource manager to add more connections:
