Postgres connection doesn't allow certain passwords

It appears that passwords with spaces in them (and possible quotes) are not accepted by the PostgreSQL connection dialog. The password should be escaped(?) and quoted before sending to the PostgreSQL backend.


#1 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - over 17 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Fixed in svn dfe84921 (SVN r6114), although I don't have a database that uses passwords to test it out on. In any case, qgis now sends properly escaped and quoted passwords to the database now.
