[Gnumed-devel] settings for gm-dbo

Hi all,

A user mailed in asking about the password for gm-dbo because that password is 
needed to register a new GNUmed user or enlist a patient as staff.

It turns out that gm-bootstrap_server does not ask for the gm-dbo password. It 
seems to set a password (maybe blank one) So the user is left in the dark 
about it.

Could someone supply the psql commands to alter the password ? Maybe a script 
could be written that will ask for the root password (sudo su), switch to 
postgres and after requesting a password for gm-dbo on the cmd line set this 

The password for gm-dbo can theoretically be set through pgadmin3. This 
however needs the password for postgres (db-user , not the system user) which 
is empty and needs to be set as well beforehand.

The other less secure option would be to change pg_hba.conf

and edit the line

host all   all    trust      # from the original md5

Please advise
