I've installed postgresql 8.3 manually on ubuntu 10.10, using ./configure, make and make install.
It works perfect but when I try to connect it using psql I need to type following cmd,
psql --port --host localhost, my question is, Is there a way that I can omit
--host=localhost paramter ??
Error Details when passing only port and not passing
psql: could not connect to server: No such file or directory Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5431"?
