I have a mac. sometimes that makes a difference, but this time I’m not so sure.
I have installed the postgresql 9.1 from Enterprise DB with out a problem. Works great. Did one option in there to refuse network connections but that shouldn’t effect localhost connections.
installed pg, eventually. Took me a while to figure out if this was the bestest of the many gems out there but this is what I went with.
database.yml refers to the database adapter as postgres
rake db:migrate requires that I install ‘activerecord-postgres-adapter’
there is no such thing.
But there seems to be several postings on the internet that says something like this configuration would work.
What’s the current best practice for setting up postgresql?
