Do not use PG that often and have it installed on several PCs. Have it turned off normally so have to go to:
Start + All Programs + System Tools + Administrative Tools + Services
find PG in the list and start. Then I open my pgAdminIII and attempt login.
Somehow it is not accepting the UID/PWD combo I set for this, and I have forgotten the defaults, so can not get in. I have been looking for the install notes to find the defaults but forgot where I put them and could not find online.
A quick help with HOWTO URL would be nice right now!
Edit pg_hba.conf (in your data folder), find the line for localhost and set the method to "trust." Restart the server and login to your windows postgres user account. You'll be able to connect w/o a password and run:
alter user postgres with password 'xxx'
I'm much more familiar w/ postgres on Linux, but hopefully that'll work on Windows.
and, make SURE you change it back after you reset the PW...
