create connection by using data environment to postgresql

i am new in postgresql, can anyone tell me how to connect to postgresql database in linux server by using the data environment . i have installed the postgresql odbc driver but i have no idea how to use the data environment to connect to database.

RE: create connection by using data environment to postgresql


In the /var/lib/pgsql/data directory, for my RedHat Linux 7.3, make sure that the pg_hda.conf file is set to trust, instead of password for example.  You should be able to connect directly to the database server like:

psql template1 postgres

This assume that the postmaster service is running.

You should setup a password for the postgres user.  After doing so, you should edit the /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_dba.conf file and make access to the databases server more restrictive, maybe by requiring passwords to access postgres, so a user would need a password to talk to the database server by issuing psql commands.
