I solve the problem by the help of Andy.

1. I change SELinux policy of the /tmp
   [root(at)bulbul /]# chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t /tmp
2. I change connection string
   old : pgsql://postgres:bbmprens(at)127(dot)0(dot)0(dot)1/prens
   new : pgsql://postgres:bbmprens(at)unix(/tmp)/prens

Then it works.

Thank you so much Andy.
