Where is the .pgpass file? If it's not in ~/.pgpass or doesn't have the right ownership (your permissions are good) then it won't be used. If it's in a different location, you might need to make use of the PGPASSFILE environment variable.On May 4, 2012, at 9:30 AM, Rebecca Clarke wrote:
I do not want to touch the pg_hba.conf so I have generated the .pgpass file.The permissions is set to 600, and I have correctly inputted the details into .pgpass, there are no leading spaces.myhostname:myport:*:postgres:mypasswordHowever I am still prompted for a password.I have tested pg_dump as well and it prompts also.Does anyone have any suggestions on what may be the culprit. Is there somewhere I need to specify to tell the system to look into the .pgpass file?If you really get stuck, you can always strace psql or pg_dump and see if it has problems opening your .pgpass file.
