      Vista, postgresql 8.3. Followed all the possible guidelines and managed to remove "failed to establish to 127..." however new problem arised. After I complete installing elephant, I tick to install postgresql, and here's what I get:


      Connection to database server lost!

      Further Informations:

      Unable to read data from transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host."

      Start service is working. During the postgresql instalation, at the end of it , it came a small table with smth like " cannot establish connection to the database" after you press yes it says "do you really indicated good 5432 port"? you click yes, and the instalation continues

      Any ideas?

      Hey gyssla,

      seems like postgreSQL wasn't uninstalled correctly in the first place.

      Please uninstall it again and make sure you delete all folers/files which are not removed by the uninstaller.
