pg_hba.conf

P: n/a
Hello, sometimes I get a strange error from postgresql when I try to
connect using ssl to the server:

LOG: parse_hba: invalid syntax in pg_hba.conf file at line 46, token
"hostssl"
FATAL: Missing or erroneous pg_hba.conf file, see postmaster log for
details

The contents of the pg_hba.conf file are

hostssl dnet att 172.16.13.40 255.255.255.255 trust

thanks

It looks as though your server was not compiled with SSL support.

In 7.3 and less ssl connections fail if a host line matches before the hostssl
line. At least I think that's the situation, there is definitely something
there that will make a ssl connection get rejected even if there is an
appropiate entry in pg_hba.conf

This works more sensibly in 7.4 I believe.

Really? Can you show an example?

Well, not at the moment. I'd have to remember the specifics as well. I think it
was something to do with the client being built with ssl but the server not. Or
it might have been both built with ssl and a host line appearing before hostssl
in pg_hba.conf.

Whatever, I believe this was addressed by someone, possibly with the
introduction of a GUC.

I'll have to see if I can scrape the time together to try things out again but
I'm very busy, what with people struggling to make something work on production
when it was working on dev only to eventually say what the problem actually is
so it could be solved in a couple of seconds.

We're looking for a (preferrably free) Windows (or browser) based PG
admin tool to use in our office. I've only ever used the psql command
line interface, so I don't have any experience with the GUI tools out
there. Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
Rick

From Windows I would recommend phpPgAdmin, but you'll need a web server with
PHP, and if you don't have it, it might not be the best tool.
You can also try PgAdmin III.

I've found DBVisualizer to be an excellent tool. Its Java based, and
not specific to Postgres. There are free and payware options.

(I don't work for them.)

I've try the trail version of PostgreSQL Manager by EMS
http://www.ems-hitec.com/pgmanager . But it is not free but not very
expensive (aboot 200$). It is a good tools.

I've try PgAdmin III on Windows 2000 . It's very good and free.

You should get both and see which one has the full functionnality's you
need.
