WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi,

I have openerp installed on webfaction using the database: laxun_stable. I have a problem with pg_dump. I am connected to webfaction using ssh. I want to do the following:

pg_dump -U laxun_stable laxun_stable -f dump.sql

I get a prompt for a password.

I have inserted the same password here, what I am using in openerp. There it works, here I got the following error message:

pg_dump: [archiver (db)] connection to database "laxun_stable" failed: FATAL: password authentication failed for user "laxun_stable"

do you have any idea what can be the problem?

Regards, Laszlo

It really sounds like you're using the wrong password when prompted by pg_dump.

Are you certain that you are using the correct password (the same password that appears in your OpenERP config file)?

Yes, I am using the same password what is in the config file of my erp. Any other idea?

The next thing to try would be resetting your password. You can change it back if you like, just make sure to change it at least once.
