View Full Version : [ubuntu] PostgreSQL Installation and Setup on Ubuntu Server 10.4 LTS

September 21st, 2010, 06:24 AM
Good afternoon all,

I am new to Ubuntu and PostgreSQL, I have installed Ubuntu Server 10.4 LTS and during the installation I selected to install PostgreSQL 8.4. The installation has gone to plan and all is OK. The problem I am, having is with the configuration of Postgres 8.4. It has installed everything with relation to the main cluster server. I would like to create another cluster server on a different partion. I must being missing something when reading the set up and starting of the new cluster server as far as auto starting. initdb has created the new cluster correctly I beleive and it is owned by the the user postgres and is part of the postgres group. I have a couple of books on PostgreSQL and the configuration file and application location are slightly different.

I would greatly appreciate any pointers in where to look.

Thanking you in advance for your help with this matter.
