I am a windows user that is trying to switch to linux.
I want to install postgresql on my local machine (suse linux) as part of a development environment.
My question is: what user do I install postgres under? I know postgresql creates a postgres user, so I can't create that from the beginning and install from that account. So, what is the relation between the account I install under, and postgresql? Can I use any login, do I need to log in as root, or is there some other user/capability I should sign on with to install postgresql under?
Thanks in advance for any help.
