I have experienced a distressing problem lately with my hosting provider
(they run RedHat), they had to downgrade their version of Postgresql
from 7.3.4 to 7.3.3 due to 7.3.4 "crashing" constantly. Instead of doing
a pg_dump of my databases they copied the data directory somewhere else
as data_old and went on with the downgrade of Postgres. They have not
been able to restore my databases but sent me a copy of the data directory.
I have tried to mount it with Mandrake 9.2 and Postgres 7.3.3 but I get
DEBUG: FindExec: searching PATH ...
DEBUG: ValidateBinary: can't stat "/bin/postgres"
DEBUG: FindExec: found "/usr/bin/postgres" using PATH
DEBUG: invoking IpcMemoryCreate(size=983040)
PANIC: The database cluster was initialized with LC_COLLATE
which is not recognized by setlocale().
It looks like you need to initdb.
Any ideas on how to solve this, desesperatly yours
