Use "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" if it's on the same machine to simplify
things. If you try to connect to your host's public IP but
postgresql.conf has listen_addresses='127.0.0.1' or
listen_addresses='localhost' then you won't be able to connect because
Pg isn't listening on your public IP, only your loopback IP. A chroot
won't affect tcp/ip, so it's still localhost when you're chrooted into
Also, you may have firewall rules in place that prevent the connection,
check for that.
