Hi Everybody,

I ran out of space over the weekend.  /usr/local/ filled up.
I got a new partition and about 1/2 done with copying the
data from the filled-up partition.  BTW, I am using postgres
8.3.0 on dell hardware/ redhat advanced server.

I did:
  $ pg_ctl status
  pg_ctl: server is running (PID: 11148)
  /usr/local/pgsql/bin/postgres

and proceeded with:

  $ pg_ctl stop -m fast
  waiting for server to shut down............................................................... failed
  pg_ctl: server does not shut down

My plan was to shutdown, make sure the env variables are
set correctly and restart.  But it refuses to go down as
shown above.  I then tried to use psql:
  $ psql canon

and it tells me:
  psql: FATAL:  the database system is shutting down

Can I kill the process 11148 and do as I planned accordingly?

I would appreciate any pointers.

Regards,
