    user account management

    I want to give a postgres account for each user of my linux server.
    In my idea, users would be able to connect without auth in console mode with psql.
    In addition they could connect to their base througth php scripts and manage their DB
    with phpPgAdmin. In this case, they will give their linux user name and password to auth.
    The admin will also be able to log in all dbases and manage them all.

    I can do all of this in trust mode, but that allows my user to log on everybody account
    and that is not really secure.

    With the following conf, I have the authentification in console mode ok, but I can't use
    neither phpPgAdmin (can't login) or just connect with a simple php script.

    Could somebody help me to configure the pg server ? (I have RTFM chapter 6 and browse the forum, but I'm still in a mess with pguser accounts) Also I want to do this conf into conf files

    Thanx a lot for your help

    pg_hba.conf (without trust)

    host sameuser ident sameuser
    host sameuser ident sameuser
    local sameuser ident sameuser

    pg_ident.conf : empty

    postgresql.conf :

    tcpip_socket = true

    max_connections = 32

    port = 5432
    hostname_lookup = false
    show_source_port = false

    unix_socket_directory = ''
    unix_socket_group = ''
    unix_socket_permissions = 0777
