After updating to latest version (20230619214423) of the CLI and the Rack, the
rack resources proxy command does not seem to work anymore. It proxies to port 80, which is strange for a MySQL resource:
$ convox rack resources proxy my_db -p 13306
proxying localhost:13306 to mysql:80
Looks like a breaking change.
Hey there eravelo,
Try to use the command
convox resources proxy resourceName -p port when you use
convox rack resources you will address rack level resources. You may additionally need to add the
-a appName option if you are not in the local directory referencing the application who’s convox.yml is responsible for the resource’s creation.
I tested this a few different ways and each time

This is configured within the application’s
convox.yml file. You can see our resources docs for a full usage explanation, but here is a brief example:
In this configuration the resources
cache are linked to the
If this all looks to be the way you have things setup, I would double check that your CLI is on the latest version by running
convox update and verifying with
Additionally, from your error it seems to not be targeting the correct application name. If you’re app which contains the db resource is not called
my-app. Convox will use your local directory name as the default app identifier when executing app level commands. You may have luck sending this with the
-a appName option with your current command.
Thanks again @Nick-Convox.
This resource was created the old way (back in 2019) with the command
convox rack resources create mysql --name my_db
but not on behalf of any app (no resources were references in any of the app’s
This must be the cause of the confusion.
Currently both client and server versions are aligned:
