How do I login as postgres user?
There are two ways to login PostgreSQL:
- By running the "psql" command as a UNIX user which is also configured as PostgreSQL user using so-called IDENT/PEER authentication, e.g., " sudo -u postgres psql ".
- Via TCP/IP connection using PostgreSQL's own managed username/password (using so-called MD5 authentication).
What is the username and password for PostgreSQL?
The default username and password are "postgres" and "password". Also when you set a superuser password during PostgreSQL installation, the password may be set up to this "superuser password" value (at least happened for me with the windows-installer installation).
