We're on a Fedora list here. Setting up PostgreSQL consists of doing yum
install postgresql-server, chkconfig postgresql on, service postgresql

That will give you an installation with quite reasonable defaults
including Unix-socket connectivity.

Of course then you discover all the PHP toys written for MySQL which
can't be told to connect a) by Unix sockets and b) without a username
and password.
