Most likely either Postgres is not running or it is not using port  
7147. You can check to see if Postgres is running by starting up  
Activity Monitor (in /Applications/Utilities) and looking for the name  
"postgres" in the process name column.

If it is not running, you can start it in Terminal assuming you know  
the location of the data. See
