Good Morning. 

You will need to modify /usr/local/gnue/etc/connections.conf and add an
entry for each database you will use. You may need to adjust the above
path if you did not use the standard installation locations. Or, if you
installed the "Development" copy using, then the location
will likely be $HOME/gnue/etc/connections.conf .

If you have a production PostgreSQL database database called "tiger",
your connections.conf file might look like: 

  provider = psycopg
  host = localhost
  dbname = tiger

Now, in your forms definitions, your datasources will have a
database="prod" property. 

Note that since provider = psycopg, this connection assumes you are
using the psycopg driver at . This is
a good driver for PostgreSQL. 

See the README.databases file located in the GNUe-Common package for a
listing of all supported drivers. 

For a more technical explanation of the connections.conf file, see
gnue/common/doc/Connections.txt .
