I want a server to be replicated, here is the scenario: When my primary server goes down or fail I want the secondary or the standby server to take over, I'm using Windows 7 for the primary server, another server in the same OS and windows xp in a virtual machine for the secondary server; Any help would be appreciated.

What have you done already? Should we point you to some documentation or examples or other? –  dezso Sep 9 '13 at 8:07
If you can give me an example, I'll be grateful, I tried to edit pg_hba.conf and postgresql.conf but with no success, so a fresh example from start to end will be fantastic :) –  Ali4356 Sep 9 '13 at 13:22
