      In last three versions of Elephant i always have same problem and am sick of it and have no clue how to fix it.

      The problem starts already with database because i just can not create new database. I tried few user names and different passwords but i always get this:

      Connection to database server lost!

      Further informations:

      FATAL: 28000: password authentication failed for user "xxx"

      Now can someone explain me how can authentication fails if i even didn't create database yet?

      Is just frustrating. I want to try elephant but i have this problem now every version at start :(

      Thx. for solutions!

      the username and pasword are the ones you set for Postgesql, it is not some new things for elephant.

      I am having the same problems with Elephant creating a database

      using Vista and put in service pact to update it but still cant get Elephant to run
      I am one of the members that got 2000 points after april the first and still think I prefer to purchase PokerTracker instead and tried pokertracker 3 & have no problems setting up database

      The problems with Elephant relates to postgreSQL but it works on pokertracker

      Please make sure you have an 8.3 postgreSQL installed. Lower versions won't work with the Elephant.

      Please also make sure you are entering the correct DB-Settings you have choosen during the install.

      I also have so many problems trying to make elephant work, with similar problem as mantioned above. I think it is a Postgre problem, because elephant itself installs with no problem.
      I see a lot of people mentioning that new installation of Postgre should be done. Can anybody explain how can this be done? I have checked instructions on Postgre web site, but they are for linux systems.
