Postgresql not running on JauntyJune 5, 2009...... at 12:53 pm | Posted in geek | 4 Comments
If like me you upgraded your ubuntu Jaunty and then found that postgresql.conf had disappeared and /etc/init.d/postgresql start failed silently. The magic command that you need to run is (drumroll):
sudo pg_createcluster 8.3 data
sudo pg_ctlcluster 8.3 data start
then carry on with createuser and createdb just as per usual.
