View Full Version : HEM or PostgreSQL problem?

04-30-2009, 11:59 AM
Tried opening HEM today and got the 'Failed to establish connection to 127.0.01' message (as I have done had on previous occasions).

I searched the forums for this message and found my way to the FAQ where I ended up following the instrcutions and deleting the postmaster.pid file.

On trying to restart the PostgreSQL database server I got the following message:

'Windows could not start the PostgreSQL Databse Server 8.2 service on local computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion'

I have not seen this message before, and have no idea what to do now. Any help is much appreciated.

Recreate the 1053 error again and then go to Control panel > Admin Tools > Event Viewer > Windows Log > Application error and look near the top for an red error sign, click on this and view the details of the error and post it here aswell or email it
