After installing Portfolio on Mac OS X, I get an error stating "SOAPFault (Server): org.postgersql.utilPSQLException: Connection refused. Check that the hostname and port are correct and that the postmaster is accepting TCP/IP connections. null" when I try to log into Portfolio administration.
The Portfolio installer has to modify the sysclt.conf file in Mac OS X before it can properly install all of its components. The installer will ask you to restart Mac OS X after it makes this change. If you install Portfolio Server before restarting, then you'll end up with this error message because PostgreSQL could not be installed properly. The following steps will help you resolve the issue:
- Run the uninstaller.app found in: /Applications/Extensis/Portfolio Server/applicatons/Uninstaller. Note: This will not remove any of your catalogs
- Go to: /Library/Extensis/Portfolio and delete the pgsql folder
- Restart your Mac server
- Run the Portfolio Server installer again
You should now be able to log into Portfolio Server administration.
