I am running the latest version of Mavericks 10.9.5 on my Mac Mini Server. Before the upgrade to the latest version of the Server App 3.2.1 I was able to access PostgreSQL in my Ruby on Rails Applications and through the Web Service. After I installed the Server App I implemented Phusion Passenger again in /Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/httpd_server_app.conf. I then opened the Server App and verified that the Web Service was turned on.
My Ruby on Rails applications stopped working stating I had the following error:
PG::ConnectionBad (could not connect to server: Connection refused Is the server running locally and accepting connections on Unix domain socket "/var/pgsql_socket/.s.PGSQL.5432"?
I checked the plist file /Library/Server/PostgreSQL/Config/ org.postgresql.postgres.plist. The two settings I usually modify to get rid of this error are the following. This was the code that worked before I updated the Server App. I checked to make sure if the code in the plist was modified after the update of Mavericks and the Server App.
When I execute the sudo serveradmin fullstatus postgres command here is the output.
postgres:dataDirHasBeenInitialized = yes postgres:PG_VERSION = "9.3.4" postgres:dataDir = "/Library/Server/PostgreSQL/Data" postgres:postgresIsResponding = no postgres:dataDirIsDirectory = yes postgres:PGserverVersion = 0 postgres:dataDirExists = yes postgres:setStateVersion = 1 postgres:state = "RUNNING"
When I was running 9.2.4 postgresIsResponding was set to yes and PGserverVersion was 90204. I'm not sure if something changed between PostgreSQL version 9.2 and 9.3.
I have done web searches but cannot find any recent posts about this using the latest versions of Mavericks and the Server app.
This is also posted in Server Fault.
Here is what happens when I do
ps -ef | grep postgres

Here is the output when I execute
