Hi, I will try to give you some generic hint due to the fact that I have not done this course and I am not a regular windows user when it comes to server side implementation of SQL and web applications. The problem you having most likely tied up with few factors. One is password authentication failure. Second is Postgres configuration file (postgresql.conf) needs amending and third is pg_hba.conf file needs amending.

So for the first one, I think you need to set up an environment variable for windows. The problem is rooted into windows cant’ locate the path for running PostgreSQL server. I do not know how to do that simply because I do not work in windows. However, this link may shed some light for you Connect to PostgreSQL Database Command Line Windows

Once you actually logged into PostgreSQL server, you do need to execute this SQL administrative commands

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON database_name* TO username;
(replace database_name with your database name and username with your username)

You need to open file manager and find postgresql.conf file and pg_hba.conf file. I am not really sure where they are located in windows. But hopefully the below links may enable you to figure it out.

Good Luck!

Hi All. I am having recurrent issue regarding the progress saving. I completed like 80% of the program and when I came next day, the progress is back to first step, This is happening while my program is still running at stage I left yesterday. Can you please help on how I can move the progress to match the status of the program?

I will really need this help as it is happening again and again even when I have worked in a program step aside for few hours.
