Configuring PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL settings are found in the following configuration file:

  • /etc/netrounds/probe-connect.conf

Below is an example of file contents specifying username "user" and password "password".

When updating the password in probe-connect.conf, you need to escape any characters that are identical to the character surrounding strings (above, this is the single quote, '). It is also best to escape any other non-alphanumeric characters. The escape character used is the backslash.

You can verify that you have set the intended password as follows:


After making changes to these settings, you must also update the PostgreSQL database itself with the new password. How to do that is explained in the chapter Updating the Database with a New User Password.
