I don't know anything about pgAccess - I've never used it.

I do occasionally use phppgadmin.

I would venture to guess that you are running into SELinux issues...is
it on? If so, try turning it off to get it out of the way, work all your
connection issues through and then turn it back on so you can create the
rules/policies necessary to allow it to work.
