Maybe some error messages are in logfiles? Where are log files for yout 
postgresql and for your web server?

I suppose you have used wrong format. The line in pg_hba.conf should read:
host all all trust

If I remember correctly this form has been deprecated...

I suppose you may safely drop listening on TCP/IP connections. "local" 
connections should be fine.
In that case insert a line into pg_hba.conf:
local all all trust
(...if you want to do it in fast but extremely unsecure way.)

Connecting from PHP you may try to use explicit username, hovewer I think your 
problem is in this pg_hba.conf's line with localhost.
Even if your hba_conf is OK, have you enabled "tcpip_socket" in 

Maybe there are conflicts with versions of modules used by PHP and your 
postgres? Have you had an older version of PostgreSQL before? Have you 
recompiled PHP, apache? Just guessing...
