Hello Albert,

you need postgis in your Mapbender database.

Please go to your Mapbender database and have a look whether you have 
the tables geometry_column and spatial_ref_sys.

You also can check by the following sql :

select postgis_full_version(); in you Mapbender database.

If postgis is not install you can add it by three commands. Have a look at the postgis documentation.

Have a look at the link see 7. to 9.:

Best regards Astrid

Hello Astrid,
indeed the mapbender setup checker showed an error in the postgis configuration:

Warning: pg_query() [function.pg-query]: Query failed: FEHLER: Funktion postgis_full_version() existiert nicht LINE 1: select postgis_full_version(); ^ HINT: Keine Funktion stimmt mit dem angegebenen Namen und den Argumenttypen überein. Sie müssen möglicherweise ausdrückliche Typumwandlungen hinzufügen. in D:\Server\clients\mapbender_2.4.5\http\tools\mapbender_setup.php on line 174
pg_query(Resource id #7,select postgis_full_version();)
PostGIS support		no PostGIS function available

But my postgis is vital and working:

template_postgis=# \df postgis*

template_postgis=# SELECT postgis_version();

Also the database check of the setup checker shows all green lights. I didn't find the misconfiguration responsible for the postgis check errors :o(
Best regards
