RT2 and RedHat Upgrade problems

I had been running RT2 2.0.15 on Redhat 7.2. I’ve upgrade the box to Redhat 7.3,
and now I’m getting Connection refused errors from RT. Here are what I’m getting in
the Apache error log:
[Wed Dec 18 10:11:45 2002] [error] Connect Failed could not connect to server:
Connection refused at /opt/rt2/lib/RT.pm line 27
DBI->connect(dbname=rt2;host=localhost) failed: could not connect to server:
Connection refused at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/DBIx/SearchBuilder/Handle.pm
line 117
[Wed Dec 18 10:11:45 2002] [error] Connect Failed could not connect to server:
Connection refused at /opt/rt2/lib/RT.pm line 27

I’ve done a testdeps -fix and everything came back OK. I can log in with the
rtuser/rtpassword combo using psql. Any ideas on where to start?

Relevant info:
Redhat 7.3 (2.4.18-18.7.xsmp kernel)
Postgres 7.2.1
RT 2.0.15
Perl 5.6.1

This is most probably a change in the way PostgreSQL is now installed on
Redhat systems. You need to edit '/var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf’
and change the line to read.

tcpip_socket = true

You will probably also have to add/change access lines in
’/var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf’. It is fairly well commented.

Thanks! It was the tcpip_socket line that I needed. Working again.-----Original Message-----
