If you could connect to the database server from the web server and get 
data with PGAdmin then it doesn't' sound like a database or database 
server problem.  How is your web app connecting to the database?  ODBC?  
That might be a bit of an issue.  PgAdmin doesn't use ODBC, it uses 
libpq directly.
