i recently installed roundcube using postgresql as my
backend and developed the blank page problem that i
saw several times in the forums: 

DB Error: DB Error: connect failed in
on line 97

postgresql, in my setting, was running on the same box
that my web server was running.  i knew the connection
worked fine because i have a substantial codebase that
was working fine.  however, i wasn't using pear.

i was connecting via unix sockets.  thus, my
connection string in the config file had to look like:

$rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] =

the @unix(/tmp) was the key.  

hopefully, this will help someone in the future.
