Hi, when installing Pentaho (no matter which version) on Ubuntu, I get the following error messages at the end of the installation, presumably based on the Postgresql server


Any ideas? ... this does not happen when I install it on Fedora


Your help much appreciated


This has now been sorted

You have to edit postgresql.conf file and change line with 'listen_addresses'.

This file you can find in the /etc/postgresql/9.3/main directory.

Default Ubuntu config have allowed only localhost (or interface, which is sufficient for using, when every PostgreSQL client work on the same computer, as PostgreSQL server. If you want connect PostgreSQL server from other computers, you have change this config line in this way:

listen_addresses = '*'

Then you have edit pg_hba.conf file, too. In this file you have set, from which computers you can connect to this server and what method of authentication you can use. Usually you will need similar line:

host all         all md5

Please, read comments in this file...


After the editing postgresql.conf and pg_hba.conf you have to restart postgresql server.
