    In my postgresql pg_hba.conf file I see an entry like this among the others.

    host samerole all 127.0.0.200/32 pam pamservice=postgresql_cpses

    If I check the various network interfaces and netstat all I see is 127.0.0.1 listening or assigned. I'm just curious as to what this address is used by. I assume it's part of the cPanel magic but what part?

    I'm running WHM 54.0 (build 19)

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    It represents a local address. Postgres is configured to use a pam authentication service (postgresql_cpses) on 127.0.0.200 to allow the temporary session users to login as the user.

    Thank you.
