Cannot Connect to Server after Upgrading to Mac OS X 10.6

Article ID: 281  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014


You cannot connect to PostgreSQL databases and Seapine product servers after upgrading to Mac OS X 10.6, and an error similar to the following is added to the server error log:

'Opening the database connection failed, could not connect to server: Connection refused.'


The postgres user was removed when the operating system was upgraded.


To re-create the default postgres user so the server can start properly, run the attached shell script as root.
