All rails commands give me a PGERROR

Hi,

I have a virtualbox with ubuntu 10.04 and Rails 3.04 installed and
working.

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 :slight_smile:

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:
development:
adapter: postgresql
database: testdb
user: tom
password: xxxxxxx
pool: 5
timeout: 5000

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
postgresql.conf file.

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.

Just checking the basics here…can you login into PosgreSQL using that
user id and password? Type psql -u at the command prompt and then, when
prompted, provide your user id and password.

Hi Bryan,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I can log in as any of the three users that I have … postgres and
two other test users I created in trying to resolve this issue.

Thanks,

fuzzy.

Hello Curtis,

I just looked at my database.yml and I do not have a host listed.

Should I list one and then make it local, ie.
host:local?

Thanks,

fuzzy.

what host do you have set in your database.yml ?
