How did u change it? I changed the last two lines from my pg_hda.conf (
"trust" to "crypt") but it didn't work.
I did the following after "su -l postgres"
1-> createdb postgres
2-> chmod 600 pg_pwd
4-> alter user postgres with password postgres_pw
6-> changed the file pg_hda.conf as described later
7-> /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql restart
After this when I try to use "psql -u -d postgres" or "psql -u", it
says that connection to database failed and failed authentication.
Thanks in advance,
