Hello.

When running two 'separate' instances of Postgres on the same machine (diff
ports), do I also have two separate installs of the binaries (prefix), or
only two separate datadir ?

If the former, should I make another "postgresb" superuser, or use the same
one?

If I have two separate prefix dirs, & only one "postgres" superuser, which
is its home dir, or does it matter?

Thanks.
