I need to switch from MySQL (where everything is peachy) to Postgresql -
reason I need to switch is I need to use PostGIS and I don't see a need
to run two databases.
I got Postgresql installed (stock CentOS / RHEL 5) and installed the
postgresql php module and mdb2 driver. Restarted the web server.
Did a MySQL dump, ran it through a perl script, and managed to get it
load into Postgresql without any apparent hickups. I can connect to
postgresql and issue queries and expected results are in fact returned.
Made a user called webuser (what, you expect the real name to be
disclosed here ??) in postgresql and gave it a password and access to
the database. Updated the data/pg_hba.conf to add the following line:
local mydbname webuser 127.0.0.1 password
restarted the postgresql server.
I *thought* that all I would then have to do is change my mdb2 dsn to
reflect the new driver to use and then find parts of my code that are
not standard enough SQL - but when I try to use anything, I get -
Fatal error: Call to undefined method MDB2_Error::execute() in
/path/to/blah on line 63
I'm missing something here.
Here's my dsn -
$dsn = array(
'phptype' => 'pgsql',
'username' => 'webuser',
'password' => 'secret',
'hostspec' => 'localhost',
'database' => 'mydbname');
What am I doing wrong?
I get the same error no matter what I set
username/password/hostspec/database to - so I think it is a basic
Yes, I put some error catching in -
MDB2 Error: connect failed, _doConnect: [Error message: unable to
establish a connection]
So it looks like pg_hba.conf file either isn't allowing it or something
else is blocking it.
*sigh* - guess back to trying to find document on setting up
authentication for an account for a pgsql web app user because the docs
I did find don't seem to be accurate.
