phpPgAdmin 4.1.3 (PHP 4.4.4) not working with postgres 8.2.4


My hosting company has recently upgraded my postgres database to 8.2.4 and the upgrade worked perfectly except I can no longer login to the database using phpPgAdmin.  I'm in a shared server environment and they upgraded to phpPgAdmin 4.1.3 (PHP 4.4.4) to make sure it wasn't a problem with an older version of phpPgAdmin.

I am still able to login via psql and via my jdbc connection in my java webapp with my main username and password and a database specific useraname and password, so we can't figure out what the problem is.  They have contacted the developers of phpPgAdmin, but haven't received any answer.

You have to look if PHP or PhpPgAdmin connects to socket where postgresql server listens. CONNECT function does not change the way server works.
You have to review phpinfo() and phppgadmin settings if they point to correct postgreswl server - i.e localhost or or ::1, not hostname or host IP address.
What was previous version?

Thanks so much for your help!

Here is the response from my host company:

The PhpPGAdmin settings are the same as were defined in the previous PhpPgAdmin file. I have found that Postgres 8.2.4 has a new function called CONNECT which I am not sure if it is causing a problem with the PhpPGAdmin setting.  What specifically were they wanting us to review in the phpinfo page?
The previous version was 4.0.1

My host compnay was able to resolve the problem.  The said: " I ended up rebuilding the actual postgres install, phppgadmin, and all of the php plugins to support postgres connections. "
Problem was seen on phpinfo()
