It's not; pgsql-admin would be better (and I think this very question
was asked there yesterday).

The only thing you need or want root access for is to add postgres
to the system startup scripts. Without that, you'll need to manually
re-launch the postgres server any time the system is rebooted.
There was some discussion of faking it with a cron job that's set to
run every few minutes: look to see if postmaster is running, start it
if not. If you have cron privileges then this might be a good enough
answer, ugly though it be.
See the other thread for more detail.
