I keep getting this error when trying to connect to my database
Error trying to connect to database 'bess' on localhost

PostrgreSQL error message: Connection to the database failed could
not connect to server: Connection timed out

Is the server running on host and accepting TCP/IP connection on
port 5432
I'm pretty sure I accepted the default port which according to all
the documentation I can find is 5432 I am very new to Linux, liking
it but frustrated, thanks in advance for any help

Make sure the database server is running.
Something like:
postmaster &
should start the postmaster or give a message stating it has already been
started.
It is possible that is not starting because the datbase data area has not
been initialised. You need to run initdb for this. For more info try:
