very good, that worked fine :-)
I restored the files from tar, started a postgresql 7.3 on an old redhat
9 ! pg_dump my database, psql it back to my postgresql 7.4 on my
production RHEL4 server .
still a small pb, I seem to have lost authentification. (although
pg_hba.conf was restore also)
$ psql -h meta1 -U ezpublish -d ezpublish_db
psql: FATAL: user "ezpublish" does not exist
if I go with:
$ psql -h meta1 -U postgres -d ezpublish_db
Welcome to psql 7.4.8, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.
that works , then I go for setting a user + password:
ezpublish_db-# ALTER USER ezpublish SET PASSWORD secret;
ERROR: syntax error at or near "$" at character 1
what's wrong ?
note that for that ezpublisher database I had initily integrated from
postgresql-contribs those functions:
$psql ezpublish_db < /usr/share/pgsql/contrib/pgcrypto.sql
don't know if my problem is related to that ?
