I finally figured out why I am gettting an authentication failure. The problem was my previous code has the declaration for PgDatabase like this.
PgDatabase * myDatabase = new PgDatabase("dbname=template1");
I was running this code on solaris and everything was working fine. I looked at the PgDatabase class and figured out that we no longer need that 'dbname='. Now my code looks like this:
PgDatabase * myDatabase = new PgDatabase("template1");
and I could now run this from the command line. I am intersted in the solution which you had for apache since I will finally integrate the code with apache.
Thanks in advance
