Configure Postgres to Allow Remote Connections
Configuring Postgres to allow remote connections involves editing the pg_hba.conf and postgresql.conf files and restarting Postgres.
It is critical that you configure Postgres to allow remote connections before you deploy a cluster. If you do not perform these steps in advance of installing your cluster, the installation fails.
- Open /var/lib/pgsql/9.6/data/pg_hba.conf and update to the following
# "local" is for Unix domain socket connections only local all all trust # IPv4 local connections: host all all 0.0.0.0/0 trust # IPv6 local connections: host all all ::/0 trust
- Open /var/lib//pgsql/9.6/data/postgresql.conf and update to the
listen_addresses = '*'
- Restart Postgres:
systemctl stop postgresql-9.6.service systemctl start postgresql-9.6.service
