    I'm trying to access a PostgreSQL database on my machine, however, I get
    the following error:

    irb(main):003:0> conn = PGconn.connect("localhost", 5432, "", "",
    "music")
    PGError: FATAL: IDENT authentication failed for user "kdresner"


    from (irb):3:in `connect'
    from (irb):3

    I created the database, so I should have the rights to access it...

    Not necessarily. What's in your pg_hba.conf and pg_ident.conf?

    Also, don't forget that connecting directly ('local' in pg_hba.conf) is
    not the same as connecting to localhost over TCP.

    Most of the times we are experiencing such problems the following
    stuffs were wrong.

    1) postgres needs to be startet with -i (for TCPIP access)

    2) pg_hba.conf has to include host 127.0.0.1 and preferable also the
    own IP address - for some reasons on some installations the postgres
    library connects to 127.0.0.1 with some eth0 interfaces IP address and
    then it didnt work unless this IP was also listed in pg_hba.conf.
    Haven't figured out yet why :-(

    3) createuser somebody

    You can also look into postgres[ql].log and check there for error
    messages.
