I have a virtualbox with ubuntu 10.04 and Rails 3.04 installed and
A Week ago I installed Postgresql and I finally got the server to
connect. I created a number of users and databases to try and resolve
the PG error message but to no avail.
The problem is that whenever I issue a command such as ‘rake db:migrate’
or ‘rails c --sandbox’ I get a FATAL: password authentication failed for
“tom”, that me
I know its redundant to point this out but I am a complete novice. In my
defence though I must point out that I take direction very well.
My database.yml is as follows:
my pg_hba.conf file is as follows:
databse admin login by UNIX sockets
local all postgres — md5
‘local’ is for Unix domain socket connections only
local all all — md5
ipv4 local connections
host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5
ipv6 local connections
host all all ::1/128 md5
then a blank line
host all postgres 127.0.0.1/32 md5
host all tom 127.0.0.1/32 md5
host all all 192.168.1.1/32 md5
type database user ip-address ip-mask method
host all all 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 md5
I have listen_address="*" and password_encryption=on in the
I am not sure if I should put anything in .pgpass
Any suggestions on what I should do next to resolve the authentication
error that I get with all of my rails commands?
Thanks in advance.
