Setup Database Failed

I'm just about to install confluence the first time on a windows 2003 server.

i installed Postgresql 9.0.7 successfully and created a db called confluence with a new user called admin.

in the setup process i select - direct jdbc connection and then

Driver Class Name: org.postgresql.Driver

Database URL: jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/confluence

Username: admin

this results in the following error:

Configuring the database failed. Couldnt create database schema.

org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: FATAL: Passwort-Authentifizierung für Benutzer admin fehlgeschlagen

I assume that this means: "Password authentication failed for user admin".

So:

1) Either your password is incorrect

2) Or postgres is actively denying auth with username / password on the server side.

You need to check you pg_hba.conf file http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/static/auth-pg-hba-conf.html and see if you allow users to connect on your postgres instance.

Thanks for your awnser... i reinstalled postgresql and authenticated only postgre as Admin. And this worked!

Best,

Fabian

Hi,

i got an similar error. In my case it's "FATAL: Ident-Authentifizierung ...". Maybe it's different because of the translation to german. But its seems to be an other error.
