Hi There, Just installed postgresql and rebuilt apache enabling PostgresSQL. I now have a 2 issues. 1. Cant authenticate a user connecting from a PHP script. Very simple code, pg_connect("host=localhost port=5432 dbname=envirote_test user=envirote_test password=test"); error is: Warning: pg_connect() [function.pg-connect]: Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "envirote_test" in /home/envirote/public_html/test.php on line 3 I know my script can find postgre because a different error is returned if you change the host value. Updating pg_hba.conf with: local all all trust then command pg_ctl reload -D /blah/blah does nothing. Any suggestions? On a second note, when creating a new user from CPanel, create db, add user to db. When logging into phpPgAdmin, the database does not display. It only displays if I log in using the cpanel username and pw. Even it I SSH and grant all priveliges to my user on the database in question, the db does not diaply at all in phpPgAdmin. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, mainly the damn connection not working. I can live having to SSH to access the DB.
