View Full Version : focus/sis setup

Please help me on this one, I cant configure my pc to make Focus/SIS run. I've already installed PHP, PostgreSQL, Apache, Htmldocs, the php-pgsql support, I've even reinstalled my O.S. with the thought I messed up the system, but I still cant get it to work.

It returns the ff:

Error: Focus/SIS cannot connect to the Postgres database. Either the database "focus" does not exist, Postgres is not running, it was not started with the -i option, or connections from this host are not allowed in the pg_hba.conf file.

If the database does not exist, create it using phpPGAdmin, PGAdmin III, or by opening a terminal window and following these directions:

1. Login as the postgres user
ex) server$ su - postgres
2. Login to the postgres database server using the template1 database
ex) server$ psql template1
3. Create the focus database
ex) template1=# CREATE DATABASE focus;

I really don't know what to do with this one. Please help.

BTW, I'm using Focus 2.2.

When Having trouble with installing Focus/SIS try instead openSIS at http://www.opensis.com we have an autoinstaller and our product is an improvement on the original code base for Focus.

Are you still having a problem? Or did you decide to migrate to the SIS suggested somewhere else. I might have some helpful hints, but don't want to expend the effort unless you're going to use them.
