I tried creating the files 0000 through 002F. Pg_dump still will not
run. The error was as follows:
-bash-3.00$ pg_dump -U postgres ebiz > ebiz_bk.sql
pg_dump: SQL command failed
pg_dump: Error message from server: ERROR: could not access status
of transaction 20080015
DETAIL: Could not read from file "pg_clog/0013" at offset 32768:
pg_dump: The command was: COPY ebizd.products_categories
(category_id, product_id) TO stdout;
