I'm a novice & I'm trying to start posgtres by doing /etc/init.d/postgresql start.

It starts.
But the next min if i try to check the process by doing ps -auwx | grep post, I dont see any process.

My installation is in /var/lib/pgsql/data.

There is nothing in serverlog.

What can be the reason?

How do i enable logging to serverlog

Tnx & regards,
