when i did some exercises to get data from my postgresql database i had the
following line in my pg_hba.conf
host all postgres IP IP trust
this was only for test-purposes on my local machine. the next step would be to
change 'trust', as this is not a clever solution. but 'trust' seems to be the
only authentication type working as i got this message:
DBMI-Postgres driver error:
cannot get user/password
GRASS 5.7.-cvs:~/diss/grassdata > v.in.db driver=pg \
database="host=IP,dbname=test,user=postgres" table=station x="x(location)" \
y="y(location)" z="z(location)" key=station_id output=meteostatio
WARNING: Cannot open database 'host=IP,dbname=test,user=postgres'
ERROR: Cannot open database $GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/ by driver
from the tutorial i got the following message:
#create new PostgreSQL user (warning, we don't use a passowrd here!)
but who can work with this recommendation?
does anyone have an advice?
thanks a lot, sabine
