I seem to be having this issue as well in version 0.8.6.

I am also on 0.8.6 and also getting the same issue. I am attempting to connect to a postgres db on Heroku

For now, this works:

var Knex = require('knex');
var URL = require('url');
var pg_server = URL.parse(process.env.DATABASE_URL);
var knex = Knex({
    client: 'pg',
    connection: {
        host: pg_server.hostname,
        port: pg_server.port,
        user: pg_server.auth.split(':')[0],
        password: pg_server.auth.split(':')[1],
        database: pg_server.path.substring(1),
        ssl: true
