Thanks for the reply. I'll do this, as the GoRails guide already had me set up almost everything through WSL and it seems simpler than trying to link the Windows version of Postgres to it.
Thanks for the response. I tried using
host: 127.0.0.1 as well as
host: 192.168.1.5, which was the address of my device, but this also failed with the following error:
Caused by: PG::ConnectionBad: could not connect to server: Connection refused Is the server running on host "127.0.0.1" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
As the title states, while following the Windows 11 Rails setup guide I found that whenever I run
rake db:create it fails with the following error:
PG::ConnectionBad: 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.5432"?
I know that postgres is running because I can connect to it from Windows command prompt with
psql -U postgres. I also made sure to add
username: postgres and
password: myPassword to database.yml in my new project.
