      hey. i loaded up the elephant to play just now and it says "Connection to database NOT successful! Please ensure that PostgreSQL is running and your settings are correct."

      i haven't done anything to postgreSQL and it was all working fine the last time i was here, now when i open database management there are no databases...

      any suggestions? i don't know anything about PostgreSQL so i don't want to mess about with it...

      Hey DrDunne,

      pls open up the control panel, navigate to "administrative tools" and open up "services".

      Search for the postgreSQL database service and start it manually in case it's not started. You can also set it to start automatically when windows starts up.

      In case the service was already started, try to create a new database within PokerStrategy.com Elephants database management.

      Hi, I have the same problem. I tried to start database server manualy, but it show me an error:

      The PostgreSQL Database server 8.3 service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.

      What should I do?
