I've created a .pgpass file in /root (which is read only by root) containing the password for the pgsql user. A quick Google on "pgpass" turned up this content from http://pgsqld.active-venture.com/libpq-files.html: _____ (...) This file should have the format: hostname:port:database:username:password Any of these may be a literal name, or *, which matches anything. The first match will be used so put more specific entries first. Entries with : or \ should be escaped with \. The permissions on .pgpass must disallow any access to world or group; achieve this by the command chmod 0600 .pgaccess. If the permissions are less strict than this, the file will be ignored. _____ > This is my pg_hba.conf file: > > # TYPE DATABASE USER CIDR-ADDRESS METHOD > # "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only > local all all ident sameuser > host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5 > hostssl all all 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 md5 > > The autovacuum script was packaged for FreeBSD, so I assume this is a > FreeBSD specific thing.

I'm not familiar with the "sameuser" directive, presumably this prohibits a system user from logging in as a user in the database with a different name? If this is the case, I don't imagine the solution I've described above will help resolve this issue. -- Nick Withers email: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web: http://www.nickwithers.com Mobile: +61 414 397 446 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
