As the error message states, your apache does not have permission to access the socket file /tmp/.s.PGSQL.5432 of your postgres server. Check that everybody has permission to read and write to this file. If not, change the settings for unix_socket_permissions in your psql config. Don't forget to check permissions for the directory as well.

Also check that your postgres is indeed using this socket (look for unix_socket_directory in your psql config) and running on port 5432 (see port in config). If it doesn't match something is wrong with your psql or php installation.
