In order to test the replication setup for a client, I need
to setup posgresql 8.3 on Debian 5.
I have installed Debian on 2 virtual machines and they can
connect to one another and the internet just fine.
However, when I use apt-get using the install dvd or online
packages to setup postgresql, I don't succeed.
The problem I am experiencing are as follows:
. I use apt-get to install the relevant packages for postgresql-8.3
. When I list /etc/postgresql directory, it is empty.
. Listing /var/lib/postgresql-8.3 it is also empty.
. Even when changing to postgres user, I am unable to use initdb as
it can not be found.
. Using psql command (command can be found) but it says that the
database is not running or not allowing socket connections.
. /etc/init.d/postgresql-8.3 start also does absolutely nothing.
Have anybody experienced this before or perhaps know what I am doing wrong?
Assistance would be much appreciated.
