To all,

 

I just applied the v8.2.7 upgrade (from v8.2.6) on and FC8 server via
yum.  The upgrade went OK, but the /var/lib/pgsql directory (with the
existing data) was renamed to /var/lib/pgsql.old and a new (and empty)
/var/lib/pgsql directory was created.

 

Does anyone know why this would have happened?  

 

The particular machine is an FC8, dual core AMD DELL with 4GB RAM
running the x86_64 pg binaries.

 

I applied the same update (v8.2.6->8.2.7) to an FC7 Pentium4 box running
the 32-bit pg binaries and did not have to rename the /var/lib/pgsql
directories.

 

Has anyone else run into this?

 

Thanks, in advance,

 

Gord
