Hello Darcy,

Thanks for help. The problem was in pgsql/data/postgresql.conf. I needed to 
change "#tcpip_socket = false" to "tcpip_socket = true"
I know am able to access my database from within Python, hwover when I try the 
python an cgi script I get an internet server error. Is there more options I 
should know about?
