After installing postgres using apt-get, when I run:
sudo /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 start
The service starts with this process:
/usr/lib/postgresql/8.3/bin/postgres -D /var/lib/postgresql/8.3/main -c config_file=/etc/postgresql/8.3/main/postgresql.conf
The issue is, the database was initialized using 'initdb' to a different directory. So it is not in '/var/lib/postgresql/8.3/main'. I would need to be able to startup the service with a different value for the '-D' parameter. Do you know how to do this?
I would be very grateful to any help.
Thank you in advance,
