hba.conf File

Host Based Authentication (HBA)


On installation, GeoHelm edits the pg_hba.conf file on installation to below:


In the above settings:

  1. SSL is enabled but not enforced
  2. Connections other than local connections use MD5 authentication.
  3. Access rules are applied to all databases and all users.


Once you have created databases and users, you should modify these settings accordingly.

Please view the full PostgreSQL documentation.

Note that changes to the hba.conf file do not require a restart of the cluster, but only a reload.

postgres@geohelm:~$ psql
psql (9.6.3)
Type "help" for help.

postgres=# SELECT pg_reload_conf();
