View Full Version : Connection can't be made

07-20-2011, 12:45 AM
DB Control Panel comes up when i start HM. Then this message comes up "A conncetion to PostgreSQL could not be made. Would you like to have HM attempt to start the service?" then "Sorry HM was unable to start the service.

I went through all the FAQ's etc., re-installed PostgreSQL a couple of times and no luck. Firewall is off and all security software is deleted. Can I set up a teamviewer session as I need the problem solved asap as i need to access my DB before i leave on the weekend.

Did you try this steps?
1. Reboot your computer
2. If that doesn't help look for the hidden system file postmaster.pid in the postgresql data folder, delete it and reboot your computer again.
3. Check the postgresql service in the windows services (control panel->administration). Sometimes it helps to change the Logon As.. to "local system account"
4. Check our FAQ:

If you can't figure it out Please schedule a remote support session with our support. Email support@holdemmanager.net, with a link to this thread and your forum name, so we can setup a Teamviewer (http://www.holdemmanager.net/teamviewer) session.
