I am trying to create a new tablespace using postgres 8.3 (Centos 5.1) and
am getting a permissions problem when trying to do so.


Basically, the directory is owned by postgres and full permissions are


I am unable to create a tablespace both in pgadmin3 and via psql with the

CREATE TABLESPACE "tablespace" OWNER nic LOCATION '/home/nic/tablespace';


Where the user nic is set-up as a login role and the directory exists.


The postgres user is able to read/write/execute in the specified directory,
so what am i missing here?


Any ideas?
