Hi Robert,

You mean I don't have to install phpPgAdmin, PHP and Apache into Cygwin? I can install them on Windows and phpPgAdmin can 'talk' or 'communicate' some how to PostgreSQL in Cygwin??? If that's true, that could be the best news I've heard in weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess my next question is, how do I get phpPgAdmin to communicate to PostgreSQL in Cygwin?

If this is all true I swear I will LICK THE PATH THAT YOU WALK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you spent as much time reading the INSTALL file as I did reading your sig 
text I think it would all make sense... you need to install php into a 
webserver (usually apache) and then install phppgadmin into the webserver. it 
operates independant of the postgresql server itself, so being on cigwyn will 
make no difference to phppgadmin.
