View Full Version : HEM error, need help.

I tried opening HM today and it won't connect because of postgres?

Says I can't connect to the server. I don't really remember anything about how the whole postgres thing works. I just know when I try to load it I get a "can't connect to server name".

The database control panel pops up where I can edit the server name, port number, login name and pass but how do I like fix this?

I ran some spyware removal stuff like spy doctor yesterday did it mess with me and interfere with my postgres? How do I fix this?

Anyway thanks.

specifically the error upon startup reads

"The following error occured when trying to open the database: Failed to establish a connection to "". And I push "OK" and it
goes to the database management window.

This is usually a firewall or windows update issue.

First try to reboot.

If no help, try this:

Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Stop Service

Start > Programs > PostgreSQL > 8.x > Start Service

If that doesnt help delete the \postgresql\8.x\data\postmaster.pid file, if you see it. And reboot.

If that doesn't help you will have to reinstall PostgreSQL completely

this should fix it: http://holdemmanager.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8182
