I have Postgres installed as a service on Windows xp pro. It has been working fine but suddenly i couldn't start it anymore. I looked in different forums for a similar problem but didn't find any solution sofar. So any help is very appreciated. one more thing to say is that i am a beginner with Postgres and don't have much administrative experience...
As i said above, i can't start my Postgres anymore. I always get the error message "could not connect to server: Connection refused (0x0000274D/10061)Is the server running on host "???" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?".
I checked if the service is running, but it wasn't running. I tried to start ist but i couldn't. Doing this from the console i got the following error: "C:\Programme\PostgreSQL\8.1\bin>pg_ctl.exe runservice -N "pgsql-8.1" -D "C:\Programme\PostgreSQL\8.1\data\"
pg_ctl: could not start service "pgsql-8.1": error code 1063"
I chekced postgres.conf and the configuration is as follows:
# - Connection Settings -
listen_addresses = 'localhost'
port = 5432
max_connections = 100
The last log file is:
2008-02-08 07:40:38 LOG: could not connect socket for statistics collector: Es konnte keine Verbindung hergestellt werden, da der Zielcomputer die Verbindung verweigerte.

I'm using Zonealarm firewall but Postgres is authorized on 127.0.0.1:5432. It's been working fine for the last month since installtion and i didn't change any configuration. I stopped both zonealarm and the windows firewall but still success, so i guess it's not a firewall problem.
I tried to ping the server using "ping 127.0.0.1" which was successful.
I tried to connect to the host with telnet using "telnet 127.0.0.1 5432" but i couldn't connect.
anyone has a suggestion what can i do to get it working again. I dont want to lose the data stored on it!
thanks in advance
