I Have a Postqresql Problem

I want to know how to edit update-rc.d and add postgresql to whitelist and comment in blacklistI
-know that Postgresql won't work on a chroot environment without whitelisting it.
But how I do that

I think are taking advice from someone who does not know what they are doing.

What are you using PostgreSQL for?

First, check the log messages as the error says.

Second, you don't need postgresql to use Metasploit.

Sorry but i am new on the android so where I can check the log message on android

Why are you determined to have postgresql? You should have MySQL installed.

When I run msfconsol I get

root@kali:~# msfconsole

  • Failed to connect to the database: could not connect to server: Connection refused

Is the server running on host "localhost" (::1) and accepting
TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
could not connect to server: Connection refused
Is the server running on host "localhost" (127.0.0.1) and accepting

Metasploit runs fine without postgresql.

Yeah working but still having that error below. And look up for posgresql to work for armitage

msfconsole works great without postgresql. This is only a problem on the mobile version of Kali. Either use the x86 or x64 version or even easier, use msfconsole.
