Did you ever figure it out, I’ve got the same problem using same snippet of PHP


The actual function is pg_connect not pg_Connect (you’re using a C instead of c in the function name).

The function should look like the following:

pg_connect("host=host_ip port=5432 dbname=db_name user=db_user password=db_pass");


Try installing this: apt-get install php5-pgsql And also check your command is pg_connect all lower case.

Make sure you restart apache afterwards.

If that’s still failing afterwards perhaps add the port to your connection string,
