All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Error:
FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "[local]", user "postgres", database "postgres", no encryption

pg_hba.conf:

# TYPE  DATABASE        USER            ADDRESS                 METHOD
host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            trust

This is a local testing database. I don’t care what or who can connect. I just need to connect.

Method 1

When I modified my pg_hba.conf, I idiotically removed the local domain socket line from the pg_hba.conf. Someone from discord helped me fix it.

The fix was to add this line to my pg_hba.conf. Unix only.

local   all             all                                     peer

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
