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
