PostgreSQL 28000

The error indicates an invalid authorization specification, meaning the credentials provided are not valid for the requested database access.

How It Affects Your App

The error indicates that the authorization credentials provided are invalid. This can prevent the application from connecting to the PostgreSQL database, resulting in the application not being able to access the data it needs. This can lead to the application not functioning properly or not being able to perform certain tasks. Additionally, the application may not be able to store data in the database, leading to data loss.

How To Fix

1. Identify the source of the PostgreSQL 28000 error:

SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity;

2. Check the PostgreSQL log file for more information about the error:

tail -f /var/log/postgresql/postgresql--main.log

3. Check the PostgreSQL configuration file for any misconfigurations:

cat /etc/postgresql//main/postgresql.conf

4. Check the PostgreSQL authentication configuration file for any misconfigurations:

cat /etc/postgresql//main/pg_hba.conf

5. Restart the PostgreSQL server:

sudo service postgresql restart

6. Use an automated database observability tool to monitor and fix the PostgreSQL 28000 error. Automated database observability tools can provide real-time visibility into the performance and health of your PostgreSQL database, allowing you to quickly identify and fix any issues that may arise. Additionally, these tools can provide alerts and notifications when certain thresholds are exceeded, allowing you to proactively address any potential issues before they become a problem.
