First of all set all firewall down and then test again.


I remember you said that the PHP server and the PGSQL server are on
different machines? Is that correct?


If so how did you succeed to connect to local host? Did you move your PHP
code to the same machine hosting your PGSQL server or do you host a PGSQL
server on both machines?


Provide some more details (a small design) to give more help else it is
hopeless like that sorry. Also provide the the part of the PHP you try to
create the connection.


Try the below proposal.


On server that host the PHP (IP=y.y.y.y)




pg_connect("host=x.x.x.x port=5432 dbname=AAAAAAA user=BBBBBBBB
password=BBBBBBBB") or die('Could not connect: ' . pg_last_error());




On server that host PGSQL (IP=x.x.x.x)


Inside pg_hba.conf



hostnossl    all         all          trust



Inside postgresql.conf


listen_addresses = 'x.x.x.x,localhost'

port = 5432


Test and report.

My postgres server is listening to same port . I tried changing both but
same error is showing. 


I restarted the servers after changing the conf files. pgadmin3 is running
on both servers and i can connect them remotely. I am able to connect to
local host using the php code.


I think i have changed the files correctly , some antivirus softwares are
running in the system i dont know whether that causes the problem.
