    Default Metasploit Database Problems

    Hello I'm trying to create a database for metasploit v3. When I run db_connect root@ I the output is:
    [-] Error while running command db_connect: Failed to connect to the database: could not connect to server: Connection refused
            Is the server running on host "" and accepting
            TCP/IP connections on port 5432?
    Call stack:
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/msf/ui/console/command_dispatcher/db.rb:1573:in `db_connect_postgresql'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/msf/ui/console/command_dispatcher/db.rb:1241:in `send'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/msf/ui/console/command_dispatcher/db.rb:1241:in `cmd_db_connect'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:246:in `send'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:246:in `run_command'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:208:in `run_single'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:202:in `each'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/dispatcher_shell.rb:202:in `run_single'
    /opt/metasploit3/msf3/lib/rex/ui/text/shell.rb:141:in `run'
    I've created a database called metasploitdb in my home directory using postgresql also, but when I try to start the server it says
    erver starting
    FATAL:  could not create lock file "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432.lock": No such file or directory
    What can I do to get this to work?
