postgresql and domain sockets
What have I missed?
( postgresql 7.3.4-9 on unstable )
I just installed this package. When I try to do, well, anything, it
psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory
Is the server running locally and accepting
connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.0"?
Here's what *is* in the directory after firing up the app:
home:~# ls -l /var/run/postgresql/
srwxrwxrwx 1 postgres postgres 0 Dec 15 00:38 .s.PGSQL.5432=
-rw------- 1 postgres postgres 28 Dec 15 00:38 .s.PGSQL.5432.lock
I see no .s.PGSQL.0, so I guess the obvious question is, how do I get
The comments in pg_hba.conf say:
# This default configuration allows any local user to connect as himself
# without a password, either through a Unix socket or through TCP/IP;
# users on other machines are denied access.
I poked around in /usr/doc/postgresql as well as in /etc/postgresql ,
but I seem to have missed something important here. Attempting to run
initdb states that I already have files in place.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
