Hi,
I am stopping the server as follows
/etc/init.d/postgres stop

starting the new /etc/init.d/postgres

my pg_log contains as follows logs

LOG:  database system was shut down at 2009-09-21 13:40:53 IST
LOG:  autovacuum launcher started
LOG:  database system is ready to accept connections


>and are there any messages in /var/lib/pgsql/data/serverlog?
what do you mean by serverlog is this same as pg_log.
