Now I am unsure how to proceed, when I used pg on os x Snow Leopard I could go into a ~/Library/Developer/postgresql folder and all my config files would be there. There would also be logs I could read to get a better idea of what's going. Now those seem to be missing, does anyone know where I can find them?

/usr/local/Cellar/postgresql/9.1.3/bin/pg_ctl -D <data Directory Path>
