I replied to Sterling's question, but sent it to him directly, instead of
posting it to the list like I intended. I'll get the hang of this stuff
I ran across the same message a couple of days ago when I upgraded to 7.0.3 at
home. The error that's being displayed is generated by the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/posgresql script. These scripts are meant to be run at boot
time. As such, they are usually started by "root". I simply "su-ed" to root
and executed the script again. Everything started OK.
Hope this helps.
