I solve the problem by the help of Andy.

1. I change SELinux policy of the /tmp
   [root@bulbul /]# chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t /tmp
2. I change connection string
   old : pgsql://postgres:bbmprens@xxxxxxxxx/prens
   new : pgsql://postgres:bbmprens@unix(/tmp)/prens

Then it works.

Thank you so much Andy.


I'm guessing one of 2 things is happening here:

- PHP is connecting through the Unix socket in /tmp, and permissions are
wrong on the /tmp directory for the Apache user
- Something like TCP wrappers is blocking localhost connections

Try changing the connection host to the machine's ethernet IP address
instead of, this will give you a clue if this is the case.
You could also examine the PostgreSQL logs - I doubt if it would log
this error, but it's worth a shot.
