I am using a QGIS project connecting to PostGIS as the database where the network has no access to the internet. When I export the data using QFieldSync, a gpkg file is created in addition to the qgs file. However, when I move the two files to the Android device, the layers are not loaded and the following error occurs.[

The save paths in the project properties is set to relative. Has anybody any ideas what the problem is?

  • In the QField project settings, did you choose "offline editing" for these layers? May 5, 2021 at 9:01

You are now connecting Qfield with online database, if you need it offline try to change all layers status to offline editing from Qfield plugin configure current project
