Hi All

After running for a couple of days, my postgres server crashes.
When I do a /etc/init.d/postgresql status, I get unused.
And when I then try and start it, it fails. Only a reboot helps.
Here's my /var/log/postgres :

DEBUG:  database system is ready
ERROR:  Relation "cleared" does not exist

Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Thanks
