I've installed pgAdmin3 in my CentOS6. I am using PostgreSQL9.

My problem is that I'm not able to add a server to the pgAdmin3. It gives me an error:

enter image description here

enter image description here

I have not a password for the user "postgres" but I've created a postgresql user just like my regular linux user and I'm able to use "psql":

[andre@andre ~]$ psql
psql (9.0.4)
Type "help" for help.

andre=> \q
[andre@andre ~]$ 

My question is: How can I use pgAdmin3 in CentOS6. there is any trick? I must to enter with the user "postgres"?

Give me a clue.

Best Regards,


The guru hint is already telling you where to look. You can allow yourself access through the pg_hba.conf file. Since you are connecting locally, you could add a line for local connections to be trusted:

host   all   all   trust

If you want to use a password, you could add

host   all   all   <password or md5>

This page should have more in-depth info on the pg_hba.conf file.

The path to pg_hba.conf should be /var/lib/pgsql/data for 32-bits systems, and /var/lib64/pgsql/data for 64-bits systems.
