I was using 7.3.4 and decided to upgrade to 7.3.8. I did this via RPMs
for RH9. RPM installed OK, and the migration of data looks like it
I have one remaining problem: I can start the DB with `pg_ctl -D
/var/lib/pgsql/data start', but I cannot start it with
`/etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql start'. The error I get is the same one
that I was getting before I 'upgraded' the data:
"An old version of the database format was found.\nYou need to upgrade
the data format before using PostgreSQL.\nSee (Your System's
documentation directory)/postgresql-7.4/README.rpm-dist for more
Does anyone know what I could do to get this to work?
Although I upgraded to 7.3.8, I saw several incorrect(?) references to
7.4 (e.g. PGVERSION=7.4 in that init script). Mistakes? Should I just
be upgrading to the latest 7.4.* version instead?
To migrate/upgrade the data after the DB install, I followed these
However, I also had to recreate the user (createuser) and the DB itself
(createdb). Is this normal, or did I do something wrong?
