Forum OpenACS Development: I'm new in AOLserver, I have a install errors

Request notifications

Hi, I'm new in AOLServer, and in a install process the systems give me some errors and I can not finish the installation.

The process Open a PostgreSQL, Load an OpenACS
Loads a Bootstrap.tcl
Say me that Database API: Default database (dbn) is "default"
Say me that Database API: Using all database pools for OpenACS
Say me that Databse API: The following pools are available for OpenACS: pool2, pool3, pool1

but in the opendrv opening database step, "postgres:localhost:5432:openacs" give me this error:

Error: Ns_PgOpenDb(postgres): could not connect to local host:5432:openacs: Fatal: database "openacs" does not exist.

I was install PostgrSQL with all defaults, and I follow the tutorial for config.tcl, and changue the user name and the password parameters. In windows I can open the PostgreSQL database without problems.

Can anybody have any idea for this? Thanks to all community.

The error message tells you that your configuration file (the startup-file for the aolserver) has a database named "openacs" configured (see under DataSource), but your postgres installation does not have such a database with this name.

Create a database "openacs" in your postgres installation. For an example of the createdb command, see
