As I said in my first post, I tried the following connection strings as
"dbname=thornvalley user=apache password=[passwd]"
"dbname=thornvalley user=apache password=[passwd] host=localhost port=5432"
and had the same results. After messing around with pg_hba.conf (I set local
authentication to 'password' instead of 'ident', I was able to get an error
message /when I used the wrong password/:
Warning: pg_connect() [function.pg-connect]: Unable to connect to PostgreSQL
server: FATAL: Password authentication failed for user "apache" . in
/var/www/html/dbtest.php on line 3
If I used the correct password, that message would not appear. Furthermore,
when I added the line
echo "$myconn = ".$myconn;
to my script after pg_connect(), I would get:
$myconn = Resource id #2
which suggessts to me that it is successful in connecting to the db server,
but, for some reason PHP is unable to use the connection after that. Like I
said, it's weird. I have no idea why it's doing that.
