I try to load a postgis raster layer. I would like to add the raster by connection with DB Manager an drag and drop into canvas.

Connection with DB Manager failed with error: UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xfc in position 34: ordinal not in range(128)

Connections to other databases are possible. Also it is possible to add shapes.

  • What is your server called, are there any special characters in the username or password? – HeikkiVesanto Sep 6 '17 at 10:58
  • no special characters, only letters and numbers. What do you mean with "what is your server called?" ip adress, port, user name and pass...this works normally well – oppia04 Sep 6 '17 at 11:25
  • The error suggests a special character. 0xFC could be ü. – HeikkiVesanto Sep 6 '17 at 12:06
  • hmmm, definitly no special characters in the database or username or password...strange is that the connection to one database is o.k. and to others are not..can´t see any differences – oppia04 Sep 6 '17 at 12:46
