Hi Minel,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Although I am not absolutetly sure if your question is about Jira in particular the error message suggest the database is not accepting connections.

This could be due to a non-running service (the database is then just not accepting any connections) or a firewall is preventing communication. As you suggest everything is running on your machine (localhost) it should be possible for you to determine.
Probably you could outline a bit in detail the setup, please? It is more likely that somebody from community is then able to help.
