"pgadmin"

You can connect to your PostgreSQL database using "pgadmin".

https://www.pgadmin.org

However you must allow connections to the database from other hosts besides "localhost".

To do this follow the steps below: (PLEASE NOTE: Doing the following creates a security risk. You have been warned.)

Step 1

Enable access from other hosts.

Modify the postgresql.conf file and change the listen_addresses parameter to allow "wildcard" hosts to connect.

See example below.

listen_addresses = '*'  		# what IP address(es) to listen on;
					# comma-separated list of addresses;
					# defaults to 'localhost'; use '*' for all
					# (change requires restart)

Step 2

Modify the pg_hba.conf file to allow other hosts to connect.

See example pg_hba.conf entries;

# Added by H Gibson for BIB IT access
host    all         all         146.232.125.245/24        md5 # Hilton
host    all         all         146.232.212.49/24         md5 # S Kroon
host    all         all         146.232.125.151/24        md5 # Wouter
host    all         all         146.232.129.78/24         md5 # libweb server

## DSpace DB user access
host    dspace       dspace      127.0.0.1/32         md5
