I am trying to follow the instructions on setting up the geoportal (open source) and have run into an issue connecting to my postgresql database. I am getting "Error connecting to the server: FATAL: could not load pg_hba.conf" I have adjusted the pg_hba.conf by adding this (http://www.pgadmin.org/docs/1.8/hints/conn-hba.html) but it still is not working. Please help.
If the postgreSQL database is on the same machine as your web container running Geoportal Server, you might want to try: # IPv4 local connections: host all all 127.0.0.1/32 trust
(That's how mine is set up)
Still, it is probably worth double checking the following: [ ] You can connect to your database using pgAdmin [ ] The postgresql jdbc driver matches the version level of your postgreSQL database [ ] The url value for the JNDI context file is pointing to the right postgreSQL database
