Hi again and thanks for your help on my previous post.

Now I ask:
>From the docs it seems that if I wish to enable WAL archiving for a
database I change the settings of  archive_mode
<runtime-config-wal.html>   and archive_command
<runtime-config-wal.html> 
in the postgresql.conf  file.
Am I right to assume that this enables WAL logging at a cluster level
i.e. EVERY database in that cluster goes into WAL archive mode?

Thanks
Austen
