Connecting JIRA to Postgresql

I'm trying to connect JIRA to a postgres database following this instruction:

However, I'm getting this message 

Error connecting to database

Connection refused. Check that the hostname and port are correct and that the postmaster is accepting TCP/IP connections.

Connection refused

Is there any tips about what to configure and how to troubleshoot the problems?

Hi Nguyen,

Hopefully you've been able to get around this by now, however, the error is that the connection is refused so I would start by checking that your firewall is allowing connections through the port Postgres is on - usually 5432.  There is a good response on the Stackoverflow site that can provide some things to check.  Hope that helps!



Hi Branden,

I have managed to connect to the database. You can close the question :D
