View Full Version : PostgreSQL problems

Hi! My HM doesnt work, probably the problem is with PostgreSQL. Could You help me pls?

When I start HM, I got this message:
"The following error occured when trying to open the database. Unable to read data from the transport connection."

When trying to connect to PostgreSQL:
"Connection error: Unable to read data from the transport connection."

I have found a thread about this, but it writes about Vista, and I got Windows XP, so I dont know, what I should do.

You should do the steps listed, except for the vista specific step for UAC. This is usually a firewall or windows update issue.

First try to delete the \postgresql\8.x\data\postmaster.pid file, if you see it, and reboot.

If no help, try this:

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

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

Add exceptions to the windows firewall, even if it is off. If you have a 3rd party firewall, do the equivalent or uninstall it temporarily - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=171

Please try following all of these FAQs, step by step:

1) http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=34
2) reinstall the same version of postgresql, using the same \data folder - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=177

If that doesn't help you will probably have to reinstall PostgreSQL completely and reimport your hands.
