+PostgreSQL connection settings
+------------------------------
+
+By default (empty :setting:`HOST`), the connection to the database is done
+through UNIX domain sockets ('local' lines in pg_hba.conf). If you want to
+connect through TCP sockets, set :setting:`HOST` to 'localhost' or '127.0.0.1'
+('host' lines in pg_hba.conf). On Windows, you should always define
+:setting:`HOST`, as UNIX domain sockets are not available.
